Twice a year, our partner, Springer Nature, offers a select group of German and Dutch nationals, who are graduates the opportunity to intern with Crest at Pune. Besides learning the ropes of the premedia industry, chosen applicants get a firsthand fascinating insight into India’s business and culture. In addition every intern takes part in a social development project.

What to expect

Once chosen, each group is prepared for their Indian stay in a comprehensive orientation event in Heidelberg and assimilated through a varied culture program on location in India.

At Crest, our interns support the team in the pre-editing, paging, graphic or marketing departments in varied premedia projects and, as a result, get thoroughly acquainted with the tasks and work processes in pre-press.

Depending on suitability, we offer an attractive and challenging entry position as Project Manager at Crest on completion of the internship.
