Careers | Tips for applicants

You would like to apply for a job with us? Then send us your application – preferably by email. You should draft the application letter as an email text document and attach further documents such as your Curriculum Vitae (CV), references and possibly a photograph.

Keep us in mind.
There’s no second chance to make a first impression. This applies especially to your application, because in it, you must, very briefly, give us a clear picture of your qualifications, interests and personality. This is very easy if you follow a few simple rules:

1. Make sure that your application documentation is complete. A good application should usually contain:

  • Cover letter
  • CV
  • All the relevant references

2. In your cover letter, give us a brief impression of yourself and your reasons for applying:

  • What job are you applying for?
  • Why are you interested in that job?
  • What do you expect from your new job?
  • Why are you particularly suitable for this position?

3. Attach a current CV:

  • Arrange it in tabular form.
  • Start with your last job/occupation.

4. Make sure you comply with standards:

  • Check the text thoroughly for grammatical and spelling mistakes.
  • Ensure it is well structured and readable.
  • Adhere to the established rules for written correspondence (e.g. paragraphs, line spacing, font).
  • In the case of online and email applications, only attach files which can be opened on any standard PC. Ideally, all Word documents should be converted to PDF format, file size not to exceed 4 MB, before sending.

5. Arouse interest in yourself:

  • Mention relevant hobbies and personal interests in your CV.
  • In the cover letter, make people want to learn more about you.
  • Tell us why employing you would be of advantage to us.
  • Provide us with link topics for a possible job interview.
