Getting started

At ProSiebenSat.1 you will encounter a symbiosis of creative passion on a professional level with commercial expertise. Our uniquely open culture within the corporation allows superb talent to develop into excellent professionals via the most diverse routes.


You have the courage to try something new. You want to come up with answers for the future. Strategic and integrated thinking comes naturally to you, seeing the bigger picture is in your DNA. If this sounds familiar, then we are the right home for you.


As an intern you will receive cross-media training to help you fully understand the interplay of television, internet and mobile devices. Our trainee programmes are fundamental to our sustainable talent management philosophy at ProSiebenSat.1 and are designed to promote long-term working relationships. Incidentally, in addition to internships, we also have numerous junior positions on offer, details of which can be found on our job portal.


With us, you can apply what you have learnt, put your skills to the test and convince us of your merits through positive performances.

All avenues are open to you as you seek to fulfill your potential. You can also take advantage of our numerous further training schemes.


practical training

Uniquely integrated training

You begin with an introductory course lasting four weeks. As well as familiarizing yourself with all of the key divisions of the company, you will also learn the basics of journalism & PR and special creativity skills to create TV reports in the first theory block. Then you are ready for the more specialized areas (TV, online or PR). You will stay here for around 18 months of your internship. Every intern spends time in different divisions of our corporation or with external partners–the cross-media principle is paramount.

For the theoretical element, ProSiebenSat.1 collaborates with the Electronic Media School (EMS) in Potsdam. You will attend a four weeks introductory block in munich as well as two/four blocks of theory, each lasting two weeks, at the EMS in potsdam. The total time allocated for training is 24 months.

Specialization in cross-media training


You touch people with your stories, you film compelling reports, exciting features, you enjoy interviewing interesting people. As a trainee in the TV division you will learn the trade from scratch, mastering research and interviewing techniques for all journalistic formats, from news to features. You will begin researching your own stories during training. You will prepare them for specific media and departments, filming, dubbing and editing your reports and developing new concepts for programmes and stations.


You are an online expert and social media maestro. You will create exclusive backstories for the ProSiebenSat.1 Group’s online portals, film videos on set and interview actors or performers. Your texts, videos, images, blogsand podcasts will add to the appeal of our stations’ websites as you work closely with TV editorial teams, PR departments and external copywriting and picture agencies.


Specializing in PR, you will be placed in corporate communications or in the press office of one of the stations. You will learn all the basics of PR business, composing press releases and maintaining contact to journalists. Furthermore, you will write reports, interviews and features for our group-wide intranet and the corporate website. You will thus play an important role in the presentation of our company.
