Internship West Coast now with Franziska Rieve

Franziska Rieve is the new project manager of the West Coast Internship Portal, which offers companies low-threshold access to school students on the West Coast. The entry is free of charge! Franziska, how does the portal work?

What advantages does the portal offer companies?

Franziska: “Praktikum Westküste offers companies good access to pupils on the West Coast. The platform is operated by the four West Coast districts of Nordfriesland, Dithmarschen, Steinburg and Pinneberg and is the largest database for internships in Schleswig-Holstein. The entry is free of charge for the company.

In addition, the entries are designed in such a way that the companies can show their general willingness to take on interns and do not have to enter individual internship positions for specific periods. This makes the entries usable in the long term.”

Why does it make sense to offer internships?

Many teenagers and young people have their first contact with the world of work through an internship. This helps them to find the right path for them from the multitude of possibilities. Companies, on the other hand, can use internships as a form of recruitment for new trainees. In this way, they consolidate their place in society and actively contribute to the local economy.

How do I register?
