Covid-19 Update: Should I still apply for an internship?

You may be wondering how Covid-19 is affecting how we work with our interns and whether it still makes sense to apply? Please see below for more information.

I am a graduate, can I still apply for an internship?

Writing your master thesis during your internship at Apricum

Sometimes we take on the important responsibility of supervising a master thesis as part of an internship. However, we are not able to guarantee this in advance due to the nature of our project-based work and the changing topics that arise. Once the internship is underway and we have more clarity on current projects, we can confirm whether we are able to supervise your master thesis, but unfortunately not beforehand.

Covid-19 Update: Should I still apply for an internship?

(as of January 2021)

You may be wondering how Covid-19 is affecting how we work with our interns and whether it still makes sense to apply?

Most likely you will have some questions, for example:

  • Will you be able to work in the office with the team or do you have to work from home?
  • How can you learn effectively if there is widespread home office?
  • What about mentoring opportunities?
  • Will this affect the projects you are assigned to?

Because so many companies are working differently during these times of Covid-19, we would like to reassure applicants that an internship can still be successfully undertaken at Apricum and here is how…

At Apricum, the health and safety of our team is paramount. We were among the first to implement “home office” as the default rule back in March 2020. Due to the current recommendations from the German government, all staff are encouraged to work from home, and therefore your onboarding will be conducted virtually by your mentor. When the Covid situation improves and restrictions are eased and official recommendations permit, you will have the flexibility to work from home or come to Apricum’s office in Mitte, Berlin. We have several large open-plan, as well as smaller individual offices at Apricum – allowing many configuration options and plenty of physical space. Simply take your laptop and plug in at any number of desks.

You’ll stay in daily contact with your mentor and other colleagues using essential tools like Slack and Zoom, plus we have regular all team meetings and virtual events.

Fortunately for Apricum, we have been just as busy with projects during the Covid pandemic as before, if not busier! Our interns will support us on a wide variety of projects and tasks just as before spanning strategy consulting and transaction advisory.

Still curious? Read more (see below) about the experiences of our two interns in 2020, both of which took place during Covid-19.

If you wish to apply for an internship from outside of the EU, please check the latest travel restriction information from Germany’s Federal Foreign Office here. We look forward to hearing from you!
