Finding jobs and opportunities in Germany

Graduate jobs

As well as employers advertising on their own websites there are many different graduate jobs boards and professional bodies advertising jobs.  Here is a selection of some of the main websites for new graduates looking for a role in Germany that we think are likely to be useful but do conduct your own research based around your career interests.

Work experience and internships

In Germany, internships are known as ‘Praktikum’. Although many German students typically gain some form of work experience as part of their course, many praktikum are also open to other EU students.

It’s important to be aware that start dates and time periods for praktikum are often very different than a typical UK internship. Many opportunities can last for up to six months and they often start at different times of the year too.

Some of these opportunities may be advertised on LSE CareerHub but the following are all specialist German internship sites.
