Prerequisites for internships

KONE International Trainee Program (ITP) is for university students who are at least halfway through their studies. Good English language skills are essential for an International Trainee. In many cases you should also be familiar with the language of the host country.

In the program you will face interesting challenges and become acquainted with KONE as a global company. ITP is also an excellent stepping-stone to a career at KONE.

Practical arrangements

Internships last from three to six months, and usually begin between April and June. If you are selected for the ITP, we cover your round-trip travel costs to the host country and pay a trainee salary. The local KONE unit will help arrange your accommodations and will assign a contact person to whom you can turn for support. It is the trainee's responsibility to obtain personal insurance as well as residence and work permits (if applicable) before departure.

The ITP 2020 application period has ended. Stay tuned for ITP 2021 around January 2021!
