50Hertz is one of the “best apprenticeship companies in Germany” in 2019 – we received this honour in the context of a study carried out by the business magazine “Capital” in collaboration with the talent platform “ausbildung.de”.

That's why I decided to do a dual study
I chose the dual studies at 50Hertz because I am a doer. Practical relevance is important for me so that I don't have to ask myself the question "What am I learning this for? 50Hertz offers not only the ideal location in the Europacity, but also exactly the right size of company to get involved in practice: With its approx. 1100 employees, 50Hertz is big enough to keep new impressions ready and on the other hand small enough not to go under as one of many.
This is how I got the dual study place
50Hertz announces the jobs for a dual study comparatively late. The job subscription on the company's career page informed me immediately by e-mail when an application was possible. About one month after the application deadline, I was invited to an aptitude test at the brand new Netzquartier at Berlin's main station. The test did not take long and was not particularly difficult for me. Among other things, simple IT basics were asked.
After the aptitude test I was invited for an interview. The 45 minutes flew by, I was especially impressed by the building. After less than a week, I got the acceptance by phone. I made an appointment directly with the employee to hand over the employment contract and to clarify further questions. At this appointment I was handed over the employment contract, which I could view at home with my parents.
This is how my dual study program works
The dual study program began with three introductory days, during which we new dual students and trainees were given a crash course in which we were explained basic corporate processes. This way we were not thrown into the deep end and had a basic idea of many processes from the very beginning. In addition, we were guided through our network control center in Neuenhagen in one day.
After the introduction days I was assigned to my department. Every three months, theory and practice phases alternated. At the university we learn a lot of new things, thanks to the good coordination of the practical assignments I can apply the newly acquired knowledge immediately. During the attendance phases at 50Hertz, I also get enough time for tasks that I receive from the university, such as writing a written paper about the practical assignments.
My tips for prospective students
Dare to apply! My experience shows that your chances of being accepted are very high if you are passionate about a topic. In my opinion 50Hertz offers top conditions, a caring supervision in theory and practice and a great atmosphere for dual study. All trainees and dual students are well networked. A special highlight are the two trainee trips per year, where we can exchange ideas with each other (comparable to a "class trip for grown-ups").
Which training path and study course will it be? Which profession or which subject? How do I write an application? We find all these questions fascinating and will gladly assist you during this time of difficult decisions. We will gladly introduce you to our dual students if you would prefer to have them answer your questions.
