Internship as an engineering school worker in Poland: excellent idea! Poland is the country with the highest growth rate in Eastern Europe. It is one of the few countries that did not go into recession after the crash of 2008. The country’s favourable environment has attracted many multinationals, like Safran, for example. It will be essential to speak English (or Polish of course), but English is more than enough.
Doing an internship as an engineering school worker in Poland: why?
Poland is full of technological companies. It is constantly on the lookout for new talent, in aeronautics, the automotive industry and new technologies. There is an “aviation valley” which employs 30,000 people in some 160 companies. The possibilities are numerous and you will find your internship abroad that will perfectly match your engineering studies!
Doing an internship as an engineering school worker in Poland: paid or unpaid?
During your traineeship in Poland, the labour code will be applied in general to supervise the traineeship. If the internship lasts more than 3 months, you have to register with the “Voivode” of your place of residence from the first month of your arrival. Internships are sometimes paid. The legal working time is 42 hours per week.
Doing an internship as an engineering school worker in Poland: cost of living
Doing an internship in Poland means ensuring a lower cost of living than in France (half the price!). You can find a studio for about 300 euros in the heart of Warsaw. It’s better that you leave with a little money aside because the salaries are not very high either: 500 euros, the equivalent of the Polish minimum wage. The same goes for the restaurants, you will eat for 5 or 10 euros.
