Career-oriented internship

School graduation (almost) in the bag – now what?

We know it’s not always easy choosing the right profession. To make your decision a little easier, you can come and see what we’re about. A career-oriented internship (for example BORS or BOGY) will give you a good idea of the various vocational groups working together in a wholesale company. You can take a look at different areas and learn what’s actually involved in being an agent for wholesale and external trade management or a warehouse specialist.

Find IT exciting? If so, you can get to know the IT agent or IT specialist in systems integration professions with us. Over a week, you will get to know the entire team and the work we do, and pitch in. This gives you varied insight into our company – and strengthens your decision-making when it comes to career choices.

Our trainees will be by your side during your internship. Supporting you is important to us. To ensure that this is always guaranteed, we offer only one-week orientation internships. Apply quickly and easily online, including your CV and a copy of your most recent report. Be sure to let us know which profession you’d like to get to know and your preferred time period for completing the internship. Although it may be possible to arrange internships at short notice in some areas (e.g. logistics), you should try to submit your application early.
