Ten universities participating in the „Career Services Austria” agree that „The provision of qualified internships is a common concern“ and are working together with the umbrella organisation to actively foster a university-wide network. „We are the first contact point for students and employers at the universities. We are aware of this responsibility and want to define together the quality standards.“
It is certain that internships provide an opportunity for students to network at an early stage with the professional world. In order to obtain an internship, it is often necessary to complete a professional application process. That is the reason why valuable tips for the application process are provided during the Internship Week, as well as a focus on clarifying the legal aspects. Additional topics include questions regarding the mandatory internships and the option to do internships abroad.
Activities will take place for one day long at each participating university in Vienna (BOKU, University Vienna, TU, WU) Linz, Salzburg, Graz (Uni Graz, TU Graz), Klagenfurt and Innsbruck with a variety of different activities.
