Internship with Buck Surveying in Kassel

Be an intern today – become an employee tomorrow. When you do a school, university or holiday internship at Buck Surveying, you will gain exciting new insights into the working life of a surveying engineer or surveying technician.

The internship – An opportunity and a challenge

In view of the wide range of options that high school and university graduates have today, using an internship to gain orientation in the job market makes a lot of sense. Internships also help to deepen the theoretical knowledge you’ve obtained in your studies. And internships aren’t only for your CV. They also can play an important role in later hiring possibilities. With an internship you don’t only get to know an occupational field, you also get to know people involved in the profession by working actively together with them.


Internship in the surveying office for secondary school students

You can get to know the working life of surveying engineers and technicians through direct personal experience. For secondary school students, internships can be organized during the school holidays or as one of the mandatory internships that your school requires. Many universities require pre-study internships as a prerequisite for certain courses of study.

An internship during your school years helps to orient you for your future job choices. You can find out which professions and activities you enjoy and what fits well for you. In this way an internship can be very useful for your later choice of an apprenticeship or university major.

In your internship you will work together with surveying engineers and surveying technicians. And it’s also possible for us to adapt the internship options to your specific interests. Are you already interested in a job in a surveying office? We could certainly offer you a suitable position and create an internship based on your interests.


Engineering internships during university study

Are you studying to become a surveying engineer? You can start to make use of what you’ve been learning at university. The practical experiences of an internship will be a great help in the theoretical work that you’re doing in your studies. Theory and practice support each other as you progress towards comprehensive and well-grounded knowledge.

And an internship doesn’t only help to expand your knowledge. It also gives you a chance to make contacts to companies and to potential employers. Our surveying office has excellent connections with other institutions and companies in the field. During an internship you will get to know property developers and the employees of various official offices and agencies. In this way, you get insights into other professional areas in addition to gaining knowledge about your own area of specialty and you can make contacts in these other areas. This also helps develop your skills in dealing professionally with customers and colleagues.

When you perform well at our company during an internship it increases your chances of being hired at a later date. Then you know already what kind of activities and team you can expect at Buck Surveying and we know what to expect in hiring you as a new employee for our company.


Soft skills

Besides the specialist knowledge and capabilities that one needs for a specific job, so-called soft skills also play an important role. When you work with your team colleagues during your internship, handle stressful situations and deal with criticism constructively, you develop some of the most important characteristics and qualities that you need for your professional life. The importance of such soft skills should not be underestimated as they are enormously important for future employers.

By successfully completing an internship you show your interest in a particular professional field and your readiness to work to potential employers. And you gain experience that will distinguish you from other job applicants in the future. Internships create important advantages for you in the development of your career and help you to find your personal orientation and career path.

Surveying internships

We can make the coffee ourselves. What, then, should you be expecting with an internship in a surveying office?

Of course, internships differ from company to company. With an internship in Kassel at Buck Surveying you can be sure that you won’t spend the whole day making coffee and working at the copy machine. Our main priority is to provide you with insights into what it means to be a surveying engineer or technician and perhaps to gain you as an employee for our office at a later time. With that in mind, we offer you an exciting, team-oriented internship that covers many aspects of our work.

In the engineer internship you accompany our surveying engineers as they do their jobs. They take you along as they do work in the field, at construction sites and property inspections and in meetings with customers. You get more than just an impression of surveying technology and practices. You also find out about how to deal successfully with customers and other employees, with handling work tasks, finding solutions and being flexible.

Our surveying technicians also work together with interns. After an extensive introduction to various surveying methods, you also get to make use of our technical devices. Whether it’s drones, lasers or robots, our technical equipment is always state of the art. You thus get insights into the modern technical possibilities of surveying.

In addition to surveying of construction sites in the field, you also will be able to work with software programs on the computer in the office. Here we create maps and 3D plans. This way you can visualize the data obtained during the surveying work in the field on the computer in the office. These presentations help to make changes and specific conditions of the sites clear and comprehensible and serve as a basis for comparison.

If you are interested in doing an apprenticeship as a surveying technician, we look forward particularly to your application for an internship. An internship provides a perfect start for an initial orientation to the profession. In this way you can test whether being a surveying technician fits for you. If you’re suitably qualified, we will be pleased to offer you a position as an apprentice later on.

Also if you’re interested in the job of surveying engineer, an internship can show you a lot about the everyday work in the profession. In this way, you can get informed about what your choices for the profession could really mean for you.

Castles, museums and galleries round the picture that Kassel has to offer.

An internship in our Kassel-based surveying office offers many possibilities. Buildings that you perhaps know from years of living in the city, such as new construction at the University, the Aue Stadium or the Atrium shopping center can be seen from the new perspective of a professional surveyor.
