Career with internship at Eurotours


37 pupils and students from tourism colleges and universities will complete an internship at Eurotours this summer.  The young tourism trainees from Austria, Germany and the Netherlands collected their first professional experience in the company headquarters in Kitzbühel and the office in Vienna.  “Eurotours is one of the top employers in Austria. Talented young and motivated employees have excellent career opportunities in our company. An internship at Eurotours is the perfect springboard for a career in tourism”, says Helga Freund, CEO of Eurotours and director of the Verkehrsbüro Group.


Exciting fields of work

Eurotours offers attractive areas of work for students who have to complete a compulsory internship or practical term as part of their course. They receive professional training and are given responsible tasks. The places at Eurotours are therefore highly sought after, no matter whether for the minimum period of eight weeks, or for internships up to six months. Internships are offered in the following areas: sales (B2B and B2C), contracting, business development, operations, eCommerce and IT.


A foundation stone for the future

The fact that they are fully integrated into the team and given responsibility from the start is something which the student trainees greatly appreciate. Jennifer Herbst, who is currently completing a six month internship in Business Development, sees it as follows: “At Eurotours I am learning the tour-operating business from the best. The professional team were extremely friendly to me right from the beginning and involved me in the everyday work process. I have therefore received an exciting in insight into tourism and could also further my personal development”.


Win-win for all

Many trainees receive a job offer at Eurotours after successfully completing their course. Andrea Kröll, who completed an internship in summer 2015 as part of her studies at the MCI Innsbruck, recalls the start of her career at Eurotours with pleasure: “During my internship I had the chance to put into practice the things I had learned during my studies. When I applied to Eurotours after I finished my course, I had lots of advantages because of my internship. It was a lot easier for me to start working as I could immediately draw on the experience I had gathered so far”.
