Theory is all very well. But there comes a time when you need to gain some practical experience.

And get to grips with some exciting challenges. Where? On a Daimler internship. Either before or during your studies. In Germany or another country.

First question: what do you want to learn?

What kind of challenges do you want to get to grips with? Whether it's the alternative engine technologies of tomorrow, or manufacturing efficiency, negotiation skills for purchasing, or fleet management finance options, our range of internships is as broad as you'd expect from a global technology leader.

Second question: where?

Daimler offers internships at various sites in Germany and abroad. To find out more about the different internships, talk to the contact person at the relevant site. So it's really up to you whether the first words you'll hear every day are guten Morgen, good morning or buenos días.

But whichever internship you choose, and wherever it is, you'll be stimulated and supported from the outset and given real projects to work on as part of a team. An internship opens up a world of opportunity and perspectives. It may even be the first step in a long-term career.

Thirdly: the details.

You can do an internship either before or during your degree. If you are applying for a pre-course or initial internship, you must supply a copy of the program for your chosen course. For an internship during your studies, you'll need a valid enrollment certificate as well as any other documents that we may require. For an internship that forms an integral part of your degree, you'll also need confirmation from the industrial placements office.
Internships generally last two to six months. Remuneration depends on the type of internship and the labor regulations in the relevant country.

If your internship is based in the Stuttgart region, your mentor may be able to organize accommodation at a Daimler-owned residence, subject to availability. This type of accommodation is cost-effective, but not free: you have to pay a portion of the costs yourself.

 You can apply for a Daimler internship at any time. Applications are made online. The positions are normally advertised on the Daimler careers website two to six months before the start of the internship.

Note concerning internships in Germany:

Non-EU applicants require a residency permit for Germany and, if applicable, a work permit. Applicants who are citizens of the new EU member states require a freedom of movement permit and, if applicable, a work permit.

Pre-study internships

If the entry requirements of your chosen course include completing a pre-course or initial internship, than Daimler is ideally placed to help you, provided you're flexible, motivated, and a good team player.
