BERLIN -- Good news for the German job market: The economic crisis notwithstanding, Deutsche Telekom plans to hire up to 3,500 new people this year, roughly 1,400 of whom will be recent graduates and seasoned professionals. The remaining 2,100 jobs on offer will be reserved for young, talented employees with internal training, with a focus on graduates from Deutsche Telekom’s cooperative study programs. The number of new positions will thus remain steady at last year's high level. In fall of this year, Deutsche Telekom will further become one of Germany's largest training provider to offer 3,300 young people the opportunity to start a high-quality professional training course within the Group.

"Given a dramatically widening skills gap and the demographic and technological shifts currently under way, we will lose if we snooze," says Thomas Sattelberger, Chief Human Resources Officer at Deutsche Telekom, explaining the continuously high number of new hires. "The economic crisis notwithstanding, we plan to continue rebalancing the age structure against the cycle at Deutsche Telekom, bring some new know-how into the company and enlarge our community of talented individuals," says Sattelberger.In particular, software developers, business administration graduates, product managers, business analysts and IT architects will be sought on the external labor market. The fact that a large number of experts are set to be hired for customer service positions underscores yet again Deutsche Telekom's determination to offer their customers the best service in the industry.
