Entry & career paths

For graduates, students, pupils, and new professional beginnings.

Direct entry

Have you successfully completed your studies or training? Congratulations! We would be delighted for clever people like you to join our project and consulting business as (junior) consultants. In our interdisciplinary teams, you can get to the bottom of our clients’ most diverse strategic questions and work with your superiors in a self-determined, methodically founded way on an equal footing.

Our internal teams are also looking forward to strengthening in the areas of office management, human resources, controlling/accounting, IT, or corporate communication. We look forward to receiving your application!


Successful doctoral studies are an immense achievement. We are happy to put ourselves forward as a sparring partner to give a boost to your academic career. Because at Prognos, science, the public, and the economy intersect with each other. Regarding your dissertation topic, we are open to your ideas as long as they are linked to our diverse consulting topics and acceptable to your university.

Simply register directly with Annika Hackenbroch, who will gladly take the time to submit your request for a doctorate position.

Master’s thesis and final thesis

Whether you are planning a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or a diploma, you will find points of contact for many fields of study. Together with our experts and your university, we will further develop your subject. Always at your side: Personal support and our know-how. Then you will have the chance to join us successfully.

Have we sparked your interest? Then contact Annika Hackenbroch directly, who will gladly take the time for your request for a doctorate or thesis.


If you are unable or do not yet want to decide whether research and consulting are the right thing for you, then start an internship (usually full-time) with us. For six months you will be a full part of the team and master the day-to-day business with us. During this time, you will get to know our professional field, get a comprehensive overview of the consulting and project business, and provide important support in the ongoing project work. For this you need a B. A. or M. A. degree, but not necessarily professional experience. The time to intern is not only after graduation, but also during transition periods between courses or when you have time off from lectures. Of course, as an intern, you will receive adequate remuneration.

Student job

You are studying, but there is still room for more, and above all, you have a great desire for practical work? Then you can join us as a student assistant for up to 20 hours per week. Together we will organise your working hours in such a way that they optimally fit around your studies. It usually makes sense to choose an area that corresponds to your field of study. But some people also want an area that complements their subject to gain insights into another field.

However, we also offer other models of student cooperation – for example, full-time during the semester break or in a permanent position with a job-accompanying study course. Just contact us and we will find a possibility. Annika Hackenbroch will be happy to answer your questions about studying and working at Prognos.

Student work placement/school work experience

Is there a compulsory internship planned for your Bachelor or Master, or do you have to complete a practical semester? Whether business administration, economics, geography, computer science, cultural or social sciences – we are an ideal partner for (almost) all degree programs. However, our internships are not about making coffee, changing print cartridges, or answering calls, but about real projects, concrete practical knowledge, and important insights that will help you further your career.

Of course, we also offer orientation work experience for school students. If you are interested, please contact Annika Hackenbroch.

Dual study

The best of both worlds: With a dual course of study, the theory of university merges with practice in the company. We look forward to a committed partnership with your university. We are open to your suggestions in terms of fields of study, provided that you link up with our various consulting topics or complement one another with our internal corporate divisions.

Have we sparked your interest? Then contact Melanie Nogossek directly, who will be happy to answer your questions.


You are on the starting blocks, can hardly wait to get started and want to show everyone what is in you? Then, as a trainee, you will become a full part of our team – right from the start. From accounting to IT, to HR and office management, you will get to know the different areas of our company from the inside. Experienced colleagues will guide you through the different phases of your apprenticeship with a great deal of heart and soul, so that you complete your training successfully.

Is it not possible for you to work full time, e.g., for family reasons? Then rely on our flexibility because we make a lot possible. Of course, you can also complete your training part-time. If you are interested, please contact Annika Hackenbroch.

Office management clerk or IT specialist – what are your starting points for your professional life?


The straightest path is not always the right one. Sometimes detours are necessary to get into the fast lane. We offer people a cross-entrance, enable new beginnings after leaving university, and open up the same opportunities for self-taught students as qualified specialists. We look forward to receiving your speculative application.
