Finding a Traineeship
The International Office does not arrange traineeships for you!
You can conduct an initial job search using the numerous job exchanges available to you. You can also access helpful information and addresses via the country-specific Chambers of Industry and Commerce (e.g. lists of companies in various sectors) or the "yellow pages". Placement organizations usually arrange practical work placements for a fee.
You will find a selection of traineeship exchanges and placement agencies (please note that some of these are subject to a fee!) on the DAAD website.
