Among other things, rapid integration in the labor market is a necessary prerequisite for the successful integration of refugees. Fraunhofer wants to make a contribution to this process appropriate to the existing basic parameters. The opportunity to apply for any officially announced vacancy at Fraunhofer is open to every refugee. All vacancies at Fraunhofer are officially announced here.
However, direct employment of refugees turns out to be difficult for both the refugee and the prospective employer. Thus in the Fraunhofer Site Concept Fraunhofer offers additional internships and educational opportunities for refugees intended to increase the chances of success in the labor market for these individuals.
The refugees are supported at the Institutes based on a mentor model, which is deployed on a need-driven basis at each site. This additional employment and support for refugees is only possible with project subsidization from the German States: The States of Bavaria, Baden-Wurttemberg and Saxony are currently providing such support. Interested parties can apply for an internship or vocational training centrally at the following e-mail address: email@example.com
The application must include a resume and proof of/grades from previous education or professional experience (when available, translated into German and notarized). In addition, the candidate should indicate whether an application for asylum-seeker status has already been decided on and what the applicant's subsequent official residence status is. Please also indicate the Institute desired. An overview of all of our Institutes can be found here.
