Internship Testimonials


Student - Commercial School

Two-week school internship

I decided to choose PROGNOST Systems GmbH in Rheine for my two-week school internship. There I was able to gain a lot of new experience in finance and accounting and was given more responsibility every day. In the beginning I had to do simple tasks like filing, but the following day I had to create preliminary calculations and soon I was allowed to help to integrate a new time recording program into the existing system. PROGNOST Systems gave me the opportunity to get to know an international company. This experience will help me a lot in the future, as I can reuse what I have learnt for my school career, which is strongly concerned with business administration and accounting.


Student – business studies

Voluntary internship in the vacation

I decided to do a six-week voluntary internship at PROGNOST Systems to gain insight into sales. Among other things, the impending selection of the specialization modules in my studies has driven me to do an internship in the sales department. My core tasks in the sales were the revision of the inquiry data sheet with Excel, the care of service contracts in the CRM system (Customer Relationship Management) and the translation of quotation templates into the English language. PROGNOST Systems has enabled me to gain impressions about an international company and to deepen my studies in the direction of international business.


Voluntary internship during holidays

In my voluntary internship I learned a lot and gained many positive impressions of PROGNOST Systems. I am thrilled because all employees are very friendly and helpful and the work was a lot of fun. During the internship, my main task was to support the marketing department in creating the new wall calendar for 2017 and the Christmas card 2016. I was able to contribute my ideas and start the first preparations for this. Another major task was to query the required marketing materials from sales partners in 32 countries all over the world. But also many smaller tasks have accompanied me during this time. After these three weeks I can say that I learned a lot and gained further experience for my life through this internship.


two-week school internship

I liked my internship at PROGNOST Systems very much because I was able to describe all the work processes in an understandable and detailed manner and I was also able to carry out a variety of tasks myself. My main tasks in the marketing department were the revision and design of the website. I also gained a lot of experience in accounting. After these two weeks I can say that I learned a lot and gained further experience for my life through this internship.


Apprentice - Electronic Technician Devices and Systems

From school project to education

I applied for an internship at PROGNOST Systems because I wanted to find a company that would enable me to implement my training project. PROGNOST Systems supported this idea and offered me the opportunity to work as an intern in the IT department for 1 year. Most of the contents covered the implementation of our IT training projects. Since the tasks in IT were limited and my interest in IT, for personal reasons, disappeared, I was entrusted with tasks from the workshop, which interested me very much and above all were fun. At the end of my internship I had the opportunity to train as an electronics technician for devices and systems, which I used and now work as an apprentice in the workshop.


Dual Student - Business Informatics

From school internship to dual studies

During the attainment of the advanced technical college entrance qualification and an apprenticeship as an IT specialist at the Berufskolleg in Rheine, I had to complete an internship for almost a year within 3 ½ years. I was able to spend this time at PROGNOST Systems and worked mainly in the IT department. But I also gained insights into other departments and got to know the entire company during my internships. After finishing school and completing my training, I was taken on as a dual student at PROGNOST Systems. During the time between training and studies I worked as an IT administrator at PROGNOST Systems. In the practice-integrated dual studies I work as an IT administrator in the operational phases, in the university phases I continue my education and work towards my Bachelor degree.
