Your start: This is how we get to know students
A recruiting process is exciting, but don't worry: we take the time to really get to know you and show you who we are.
You’ll have an interview lasting about one-and-a-half hours with colleagues from the human resources department and from consulting. This will cover your CV, your experience, and your expectations. We’ll also conduct a case interview with you. We’d like to take this opportunity to get to know you as a person because we’re convinced: successfull project and team integration comes with good chemistry. We’d like to introduce you to our corporate culture and show you the learning opportunities you’ll have with us. Ask us anything!
If we have the feeling that you’re a good fit we’ll contact you within the following days and send your contract shortly afterwards.
We want to give you the best possible start from day one! That's why our onboarding will give you deep insights into our processes. You’ll get to know your mentor and student contact person and will be warmly welcomed into the large team of other students. And because you are part of the whole team, we'll introduce you to the company at our jour first Friday over breakfast and coffee.
We do not hire at a fixed date - so you’re welcome to apply any time. Be excited about your time with us - we are looking forward to hearing from you!
What our students say about us:
Former working student
I was assigned to projects alsmost the entire time and was able to take on active parts. I was in constant contact with my project team, so I was able to manage my workload in conjunction with my university commitments. Due to the positive atmosphere within H&Z, there was no need to be afraif of contact. All these factors led to my decision to stay with H&Z.
Former intern & working student
I was never treated as an “intern”, but as a permanent employee and at eye level, and I was given a lot of responsibility on my project accordingly. It was not the classic “scrubbing slides” that you often hear about, but being in the thick of things, communicating with the customer and actively helping to shape things.
Former intern & working tudent
H&Z was an opportunity for me to make a positive impact on the world and drive change in a sustainable way. Our office, the HIVE, felt like home to me and it was always a great pleasure to work here with colleaugues and our clients.
Are there any rules regarding home office?
Since we have different working models and many employees and students are the customer during the week, it is difficult to formulate a general rule here. As a rule of thumb, we try not to be in the home office more than two days per week. Friday is particularly important to us - this is when we are obliged to be in the office, as we deliberately get together on this day to promote exchange and community. Deviations or exceptions are discussed with the mentor and are also possible. However, we recommend that our interns and working students be on site as much as possible, as this makes familiarization and networking much easier.
What does a typical working week look like?
We don´t have a “typical” week at H&Z - your everyday life with us will be very varied. Basically, hoewever, you will be working primarily for our customers on the projects from Monday to Thursday. This can be on-site at the customer´s location as well as in our office. Friday is the day when we all come to the office. We start here with a joint breakfast at our company-wide Jour Fixe, where projects or interesting topics are presented or the Executive Board gives an update on the company.
Do I have fixed working days as a working student?
Our working students receive a contract for up to 20 hours per week. We can discuss together exactly which days of the week you will work or be available. Good communication is important to us so that we know your availability for the project. Please let us know in advance if there are days on which you will definitely not be able to work, this will make it easier for us to plan.
Can or do I have to decide on a content focus?
We consult in the fields of procurement, strategy & performance, and transformation & sustainability. If you are interested in one field in particular, please let us know. We can take this into account in the distribution of tasks and the project staffing - however, it will not always work out that you will be assigned to your desired project. We try to provide you with an internship that gives you both deep and borad insights.
How many students does H&Z have and how do you get to know each other?
We usually have between 20 -25 interns and working students with us. In addition to our activities for students (e.g. breakfast, student jour fixe or Q&A sessions), the students often organize themselves for joint parties or trips. There is always something going on in the office, and many students like to get together and use their swarm intelligence to resolve mutual questions quickly. So you will soon find new friends.
