Combination programme part 2: Practical experience at full salary

In my last blog post, I told you about my search for a part-time job with a study-related background. With the combination programme at TÜV Rheinland, I was able to combine both – and even write my master’s thesis in the company.

Together in our team at TÜV Rheinland, we further developed the idea of the combination programme and designed a one-year programme for students before starting their careers. The combination programme consists of a practical phase of 3 days and a study phase of 2 days per week – similar to my own programme back then. In addition, the programme offers the opportunity to gain experience in the “Center of Integrated Management” in Cologne through job rotation in addition to the actual specialist area, where the final thesis is also written (possible locations are Berlin, Cologne and Nuremberg). There you get to know the processes and strategies of the company and can work on projects together with the management.

The combination programme: an all-round carefree package

The whole thing is rounded off by a mentoring programme in which you are assigned a permanent partner for your thesis and the opportunity to take part in internal training courses. If the chemistry is right on both sides, a seamless transition to the appropriate department after graduation is intended. This is a win-win situation for both parties as they get to know each other at an early stage and see whether their professional interests and working methods fit together. When you start your career, you are no longer “the newcomer”, but an already valued part of the team in ongoing projects.

Students – as diverse as their fields of study

Recently we hired the 7th student within 6 months. The profiles of the students are as diverse as our consulting portfolio itself and range from IT to electrical engineering and industrial engineering. We receive constant feedback from applicants that such a combination programme, which enables the combination of studies and exciting practical work without cutting back on salary, is still quite unique.

Seize your chance!

For me personally, such a programme would certainly have helped me already in my bachelor’s degree to understand what I enjoy and where I would like to go professionally. Therefore, I would recommend the combination programme to anyone who could identify themselves with my text and perhaps had similar experiences as I did during my studies. If you are interested in the combination programme, please visit our careers page (keyword “internship and thesis”): We are always on the lookout for new students and are also happy to receive applications via the Careers page even if your current field of study is not explicitly advertised at the moment.

Anna-Lena, 26, went through the combination programme at TÜV Rheinland Consulting GmbH herself and became a junior project manager after her master’s degree.
