SCHOTT International Graduate Program
What we offer
For graduates, tailor-made milestones of the program give you the chance to shape your entire career! Challenge yourself in project management, excel in a business simulation, and enlarge your network by interacting with international colleagues during the whole program. Our program includes:
• Assignments in different teams

The program usually starts six times per year – on the first day of February, April, June, August, October, and December, respectively. You will apply to a specific opening at a SCHOTT site around the world – so be sure to check the SCHOTT job board regularly. Please apply online, so that we can invite the best candidates quickly to the Assessment Centre (AC) - in Mainz or online. After AC we will be happy to offer you a full-time employment contract.
Your way into the program
The Program is a great place for recent graduates (Bachelor or higher, above-average grades), e.g. in Engineering, Supply Chain Management, Product Management, Chemistry, Physics, Sales, or Business Administration. Plus some work experience (intern/on-the-job), ideally in an international context. Please check our graduate position vacancies on the SCHOTT Job Board and apply online with the cover letter, your CV, transcripts of your university diploma and other related working experience documents, as well as an international experience report (optional).
The recruitment could start at any time. Once you’ve passed your interview, you will be invited to the Assessment Center, which takes place in our headquarters Mainz, Germany or online. After you pass the Assessment Center, you will be hired as a Graduate. We hope to welcome you soon!
What our graduates say
A career start filled with learning
"Originally, I applied for the SCHOTT International Graduate Program because after studying finance in London, I was hooked on international studies. In the International Graduate Program, you get to know other graduates from all over the world, and that’s such an amazing experience.
Right now, I’m working as a Graduate Sales in Sales Development. In November, I coordinated SCHOTT’s first e-commerce venture on Amazon that spotlighted the SCHOTT Contact Shield to help businesses keep moving forward during the COVID-19 pandemic. I finished project management training, and I also spent time in various other departments.
Currently, I’m also learning Spanish through SCHOTT’s Rosetta Stone partnership. It truly has been a year filled with learning and personal development: with the foundation of the graduate program, I feel prepared to take on whatever may arise at work.
The next step in the program would be an international assignment."
