Springer Nature´s internship program at Springer Nature Technology and Publishing Solutions (SNTPS) in Pune gives university graduates and students a fascinating insight into India`s business and culture.
This extraordinary internship program is offered twice a year and gives university graduates and students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and fascinating insights into the business life in and culture of India. It also includes a cultural component and participation in a social development project. These three components represent our valuable contribution to intercultural understanding.
Twice a year, in mid-February and mid-August, a new group of German (we accept applications from other European countries as well) interns sets off for India. Each group is prepared for their stay in India in a comprehensive introductory event in Heidelberg, which is complemented by a varied cultural program on site in India.
During their six month stay, the interns support our colleagues in the pre/copy editing, project management or marketing departments in various book and journal projects, allowing them to familiarize themselves with the tasks and work processes in prepress 'hands on'.
Alongside an university degree (or current enrollment) in the areas print production, print and media technology, media design/media studies, literature and book studies or the humanities (e.g. German/Dutch studies or Indology), applicants should also fulfill the following requirements:
- excellent German language skills*, as well as written and spoken English, further languages advantageous (*only applies for the departments working with German language)
- experience in publishing
- excellent MS Office skills
- intercultural and social skills, gained through experience (work or study) abroad
- interest in the Indian culture
- ability to adapt to and assimilate into a new culture
- above average commitment and the ability to work under pressure
