First-hand experience

What does your typical working day look like?

Together with my direct colleague, I look after the vacancies for interns and working students completely independently. In the morning, we create the applications that have been newly received and then send out confirmations of receipt. Then we schedule telephone interviews. We conduct these independently and then take care of the acceptances or rejections.

Why did you choose this internship?

The candidate experience was great for me. I felt very comfortable and picked up throughout the entire application process. The first telephone interview was very pleasant and left a positive impression. The scope of duties and the company values appealed to me and it is simply very important to me that I also feel comfortable in the team in addition to the scope of duties. I immediately sensed that this was a good fit.

Onur, Working Student Marketing


  • Why did you decide to take this job?
    During my six-month internship at Hays, I already really enjoyed my job. I had a steep learning curve, was always encouraged and challenged and was allowed to work very independently on my own projects right from the start.

    What do you value most about Hays?
    That I can work very flexibly and remotely. I also appreciate my work colleagues and the atmosphere around them.

  • Why is your employer a good fit for you?
    Because Hays offers me many opportunities and options to develop in different directions and roles to grow both personally and professionally.

    What is your typical working day like?
    Actually, there is no typical working day. I usually work on the days when we have our team meetings. There we talk about which projects we are currently working on and support each other. Otherwise, I do a lot of research and conceptual work on my projects.
