You will be sent a confirmation e-mail as soon as your application is received. However, we do need some time for the application process, as we have to coordinate with the respective specialist departments. Generally, you'll hear from us in four to six weeks. We will reply in any case.

Ideally, six months. This ensures that you really get to know the respective specialist unit and are able to provide effective support in projects. The individual job ads state how long the internship is intended for.

Our internships are offered only to university or college students. However, we do offer school students the chance of a one to two-week trial internship.

During your internships, you will receive a monthly wage of €670 (if you do not have a degree) and €950 (if you have a degree). We also pay a distance-based travel allowance. Social insurance contributions have to be paid within the scope of a voluntary internship. These are not paid in the case of a mandatory internship.

So, don't give up, we look forward to receiving your application.

We'll be happy to help you find accommodation by providing you with contacts and addresses.

In cases such as these, we ask that you withdraw your application to HUGO BOSS online via your personal Candidate Profile. Naturally, you can submit an application to us again at a later date.
