Every year we offer students and graduates opportunities to work and develop with interesting projects around the world. Most KONE internships require studies in business, engineering, information technology or law but there are also positions for students from other disciplines.
Prerequisites for internships
The KONE International Trainee Programme (ITP) is for university students who are at least halfway through their studies. Good English language skills are essential for an International Trainee. In many cases you should also be familiar with the language of the host country. In the programme you will face interesting challenges and become acquainted with KONE as a global company. ITP is also an excellent stepping stone to a career with KONE.
Internships last from three to six months, and usually begin between April and June. If you are selected for the ITP, we cover your round-trip travel costs to the host country and pay a trainee salary. The local KONE unit will help arrange your accommodation and will assign a contact person to whom you can turn for support. It will be your responsibility to obtain personal insurance as well as residence and work permits (if applicable) before departure.
The next application period is from 10 January to 12 February 2015 and all open International Trainee Programme positions will be published on these pages.
