We offer apprenticeships and dual study programs in quite a range of commercial and technical professions. Would you like to learn a new profession with curiosity and commitment? You are more than welcome to join us: We will train you so that we can take you over later on.
Professional training at United Internet is unique - because it is what you make of it. Together with you we’ll organize your professional qualification so you can get the most out of your time here with us. It is our goal to integrate you into our company after your training and then develop you into an expert or leadership for us.
A few years ago we also decided to start training people very successfully who had had to flee from their home countries.
Divers brands, products, themes
Your training will be just as diverse as United Internet. Depending on the opportunities, your respective location offers, you can get a taste of different departments and explore different brands, working methods and technologies. No matter whether you deal with e-mail, mobile communication or servers - it will surely never be boring with us. Cross-functional training projects and, of course, the time you spend at vocational school or Cooperative State University complement the training contents of the departments.
How the training is organized
Our training offers and our study courses take three years. Apprentices alternate between vocational school and working in the company on a daily or weekly basis, while students alternate between theoretical and practical phases every three months. Academic studies will be taught at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University at Karlsruhe, Mannheim or Stuttgart, depending on the respective subject you study.
The first year of your training focuses on basics. Depending on your individual profession, you will practice programming, train professional customer communication or perform sophisticated data analyses with Excel. Depending on your specific location, you can then go into greater depth on topics of your choice and change departments every three to six months during your second and third year of training. In your final training phase, we work towards your future employment with us and prepare you directly for the start of your career.
Best Place to Learn certified
Best Place to Learn, Germany's seal of approval for apprenticeship, only certifies companies that demonstrate that they provide young people with excellent qualifications. We put our training to the test and are proud to have received the award for the second time in a row in 2023. Our trainers, apprentices, dual students and former apprentices were surveyed on topics such as onboarding, integration into the company, professional learning, competence of our trainers and results of the training. We scored particularly well in terms of the opportunities our apprentices have to sharp their own apprenticeship.

"Hello, we are Felix, Sophie & Christine, apprenticeship leaders at United Internet. We look forward to getting to know you and helping you find the right apprenticeship for you."
'At the beginning of my apprenticeship, I wouldn't have thought what a great variety awaited me in my day-to-day work. The apprenticeship is what you make of it!'
'The advantage of the dual study program is that you can already gain a lot of work experience by alternating between theory and practice. It's a lot of fun and you gain new experience every day.'
'As trainees, we don't just listen, we also get to work actively in the data center and learn about new hardware and how to replace it. As part of the team, we get to work hands-on right from the start, learn about processes, and see how such a large company is networked.'
'In a world increasingly dominated by technology, it's a real joy to solve the puzzle that frustrates others. With every project I'm a part of, I grow as a confident IT professional who can help shape the future of IT.'
'The dual study program at United Internet gives us the opportunity to take responsibility, organize our time effectively and work independently. This helps you both professionally and for other areas of your life.'
How do I apply for a job correctly? What do I have to think about? And what are the next steps then? Here you can find out everything you need to know for your successful job application.
Which application documents do I need?
Your application should always include your CV, a cover letter and your last school report.
Additional documents (if available), such as certificates of voluntary work, qualification certificates or internship confirmations are also very helpful. In your cover letter, please tell us why you are interested in this training and why you think United Internet would suit you best. Do you have any hobbies, internships or any other kind of experience in this area? What makes you unique? Please send us your application digitally.
What do I need to provide?
We are looking for curious people who are interested in more than just the bare exam material. If you are eager to learn and full of energy, you have arrived at the right place. For your study course as well as for any kind of professional training, you should have the respective talents - and these differ on the profession you choose.
Which kind of academic degree do I need?
A high school diploma is not required for an apprenticeship with us. You are also welcome to apply with a lower secondary school leaving certificate. In the end, what counts just as much is your motivation, your personality and how you can convince us in the job interview.
For a study course at the DHBW you certainly need a high school diploma. If you have any other kind of university entrance qualification, you must first take a study aptitude test at the DHBW. We would be happy to advise you on this.
What happens after my application?
Even before you start your training, we would like to be sure that we can really offer you the kind of job you will be happy with. That is why we want to get to know you as much as possible.
If your application documents have convinced us, we will invite you to an initial interview to meet you. In this meeting you can find out more about our trainings or studies, about your specific training departments and the tasks involved. And then, as soon as you and we are sure, we conclude the study or training contract with each other.
Why choose United Internet?
Right from the start, you will have many opportunities to participate in essential projects and take on responsibility. You will actively take part in in challenging tasks and work with state-of-the-art technology, processes and products on a daily basis. Just right for those who are curious and don't want to get bogged down in routine.
