You can gain a first impression by taking a look at our alumni (former interns and working students): Career springboard Zalvus // For (prospective) students and young professionals



Working student in the Business Development Team // Currently at Shell

Besides my studies at the HU, I joined Zalvus as a working student. There I primarily focused on research tasks, as I was able to manage these flexibly parallel to my studies. Afterwards, I worked at Bosch Service Solutions in BMW Customer Care. Thanks to my insights into various job profiles at Zalvus, I mastered the interview process with ease. I still have a close relationship with the founders and other Zalvusians. Perhaps one day I'll join them as a consultant.



Working student in the sales team & support for the COO // Currently at Immofolia

Zalvus was recommended to me by a contact - the mission “revolution of recruiting” made me curious. Parallel to my studies at the HWR, I supported Zalvus for 20 hours a week (40 in my semester break) as a working student. I particularly liked the fact that I was allowed to have occasional customer contact after an in-depth onboarding. Speaking on the phone taught me an incredible amount, also for my subsequent career at KPMG. Thank you, Zalvus!



Working student in the IT team // Currently at Bettermile 

Actually, I was happy in my last role as a working student in software development, but then I came across the open working student position at Zalvus on Instagram. The application process was pretty easy, so I decided to try my luck. I had a preliminary interview within a few days and was able to get to know the pleasant team. In particular, my very experienced and fit direct colleagues in the IT team convinced me to start. Alongside this, I studied computer science at the TU Berlin. 



Summer Intern (twice) in the Business Development Team // Currently at EQT Group

I first supported Zalvus during my semester break while studying at Princeton University in the USA. After a rapid learning curve, I decided to support Zalvus again shortly before my graduation in summer 2020, this time from a work-from-home position. I have meanwhile graduated and in July 2020 I joined Goldman Sachs in New York City as an Investment Banking Analyst. My experience at Zalvus helped me especially in job interviews, allowing me to work at the world's leading investment banking firm.



Working student in the IT team // Subsequent employment as Junior Web Developer

Besides studying computer science at the TU Berlin, I joined Zalvus as a working student. I like practical experience over theory, which is why I subsequently applied for a permanent position as a Junior Web Developer. I was attracted by the topnotch in-house IT at Zalvus, from which I was able to learn an incredible amount and gradually develop into the role of an experienced programmer. This has given me the best career prospects!



Intern in the Talent Team // Master's student at the Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau

After completing an internship in the HR department of a travel agency as part of my bachelor's degree, I wanted to expand my HR expertise by focusing not only on in-house recruiting, but also on cross-industry and cross-career positions and candidates. As an intern at Zalvus, I was able to take on responsibility straight after extensive onboarding and various training sessions - I am very grateful for this opportunity, as it has helped me significantly both personally and professionally.
