Register as an employer on the IAESTE Exchange Platform (abbreviated to EP). After verification from the IAESTE Germany National Committee, you will receive your login details. We would be happy to send you guidelines on drafting a placement offer.

The recruitment services performed by the IAESTE’s German Committee are free of charge for employers in Germany. The intern’s salary will be your only expense.

The IAESTE statutes stipulate that the intern’s salary must, at a minimum, cover student living costs incurred while staying in the host country.

In Germany, interns are entitled to the payment of the legal minimum wage. Compulsory placements and those lasting a maximum of three months are exempt from this rule. At present, a monthly salary of 750 euros is deemed adequate to cover living costs in Germany, a figure based on the maximum amount paid by BAföG financial assistance scheme.

The more detailed your placement description is, the more suitable the applicants we can suggest to you will be. You can also download the application dossiers easily and quickly via the Exchange Platform, informing us of your decision with just two clicks.
