Application tips

First impressions count – that holds particularly true for your application. Here you should give us a brief and precise idea of your qualifications, your interests and your personality. There are several rules you should observe in the process:

 

1. Completeness of your application documents

Make sure that your application documents are complete. A complete application includes the following:

  • Letter of application
  • Curriculum vitae (CV)
  • All training, professional and other certificates relevant for your profession

 

2. Current CV and relevant certificates

Attach a current CV and all relevant certificates:

  • Write your CV in tabular form.
  • Start with your last job.
  • Make sure that scanned documents have a good and legible quality.

 

3. Compliance with standards

Check for compliance with standards:

  • Check all texts carefully for phrasing and spelling mistakes.
  • Provide a clear structure and good readibility.
  • In the case of online and e-mail applications, attach only files which can be opened on any standard computer. Ideally, all Word documents should be converted to PDF format before they are sent.
  • Avoid attaching too many or overly large files to your application e-mail. Combine (e.g. zip) the attachments to your application to obtain only a few files or one single file.

 

 

4. Brief overview of you as a person and your motives

Your letter should give us a brief overview of you as a person and your motives:

  • What job are you applying for?
  • Why are you interested in this job?
  • What do you expect from your new job?
  • Why are you especially qualified for this position?
  • Please also mention any relevant hobbies and/or personal interests in the curriculum vitae.
  • Your letter of application should make us want to find out more about you.
  • Tell us why your work would be especially valuable for our company.
