Speculative applications

Advice: Please do not use the feature on this page to set up a job subscription, as you will then only be informed about the application forms for speculative applications.

Who should consider handing in a speculative application?


If you are interested in an internship or a working student job at 50Hertz, we believe that a speculative application is a very suitable way to get in touch with each other. This also applies if you would like to write your diploma, bachelor or master thesis with us. Please use the "Application form for speculative applications by students" above.

Legal Clerkship

Have you successfully passed your first state law examination and would like to complete an elective period in the field of energy law as part of your legal traineeship? The energy transition offers challenging tasks. At 50Hertz, you will have the opportunity to test your knowledge in practice. Please use the "Application form for speculative applications for legal traineeship" above for your application.

Professionals and Young Professionals

For experienced professionals and those just starting out in their careers, we recommend our job subscription service instead of an speculative application: We will be happy to inform you by e-mail as soon as we advertise a vacancy that matches your desired categories. The advantage for you: By applying for a specific job, you can present yourself in a much more convincing way than would be possible with a speculative application. If you would like to find out about your individual career opportunities at 50Hertz, then let's talk on the phone (contact details can be found on the pages for Professionals and Young Professionals).

How do I make a speculative application and what do I need to bear in mind?

Tips for a convincing cover letter

We at 50Hertz appreciate it very much when student applicants show initiative. At the same time, we are aware of the particular challenge of formulating an appealing as well as convincing application without a specific job reference. Answering the following questions is not only an advantage for you, but also for us, as it allows us to better and more reliably assess your individual motivation and competencies, while at the same time making the application process more targeted and efficient:

  • Why did you decide to apply at 50Hertz?
  • Which area / which topics appeal to you in particular and why?
  • What distinguishes you with regard to these topics, what experience and knowledge do you bring to the table?
  • What do you expect from a student job at 50Hertz?

The more clearly you describe your interests and strengths in your cover letter, the easier it will be for us to win over the colleagues in the departments for your application.

We look forward to receiving your application!

If you notice that your application is taking longer to process than indicated here, please do not hesitate to ask your contact person Hannah Grandinger (work@50hertz.com) about the status of your application.
