About the Program

Who should apply?

Eager graduates hungry for learning and a global mindset.

What lies ahead?

During this 24-month program you’ll complete various assignments in different Linde departments, ranging from two to six months each. In between these rotations you’ll have two-day training modules to foster your network at Linde and to help you specifically prepare for your next tasks. These training modules include initial teambuilding, a financial game, intercultural awareness (before your assignment abroad) and special courses for communication and conflict as well as presentation and negotiation. At the end of the program, we’ll support you in finding a position best suited to your strengths.

How do I get the most out of the program?
  • Focus on a specialization: you are offered a choice between three different career paths.
  • Train specific skills: mentoring and individually tailored training will boost your abilities in areas ranging from intercultural awareness to negotiation.
  • See the world: you will improve your foreign language skills while getting to know a new culture and another way of life by working abroad.
  • Build your network: collaborate with other graduates and employees to establish connections for the professional path ahead of you.
  • Shape your future: this two-year scheme is only the beginning - a brilliant career will await you afterwards.
How do I apply?

Recruiting begins either in May or October with participants starting in the autumn or spring. Please check our careers site for available openings. 

Applicants are usually asked to send in their CV, references, academic certificates and a one-page essay explaining why you want to join the program and what you want to achieve in these 24 months. If you are successful in the four-step selection process, you will then be able to join the program only a few months later.

How does selection work?

Once the application period closes, our work begins! We devote our time to picking the best candidates. Here we advance in four steps:

Step 1: Local Screening
We carefully screen all applications by assessing the CVs and motivational letters to pre-select candidates for the next stage.

Step 2: Telephone interview
We arrange a structured interview over the phone.

Step 3: Online testing
If successful, you’ll be invited to an online psychometrics test with a focus on assessing intelligence and social skills.

Step 4: Face-to-face meeting
For a final decision, a line manager and a representative of the human resources department will interview you in person.
