  • How far in advance should I apply for an internship?

    We advertise our internships in our job portal around three to five months before the start date – meaning around April for internships starting in August/September and October for February/March.

  • What does the application process for an internship entail?
    1. Your online application
    2. Receipt of confirmation by HUGO BOSS
    3. Review of your application package by recruiter and department
    4. Phone/Skype interview and/or personal meetings (optional)

    Once we’ve gotten to know each other and are convinced we want to work together, we’ll welcome you to the HUGO BOSS team.

  • How long is an internship?

    Internships usually last four to six moths; six months is considered ideal. This will give you enough time to get to know the department and the company exactly and collaborate on successful projects. See the relevant job advertisement to find out how long an individual internship will last.

  • Where can I serve an internship?

    You can serve an internship at any HUGO BOSS location worldwide. Each location recruits their own interns. Please note that intern compensation may vary between locations.

  • What is the compensation for an internship?

    During a mandatory internship at our Metzingen headquarters, you will receive monthly compensation of EUR 670 (without academic degree) or EUR 950 (with academic degree). If you serve a voluntary internship (for three months), you will be paid the statutory minimum wage. You’ll also receive travel expenses based on distance.
