APPLICATION TIPS FOR PROFESSIONALS.

You already have a few years of professional experience and are looking for a new challenge? Find out what to consider when you apply.

Important note: We’re currently in the transition phase from our old job assistant to a new application system. This however also means that it’s currently possible, especially when it comes to multiple applications, that redirections to two different portals might take place. But there’s no need to worry: As long as applications are still running through the old job assistant, we’ll also check and revise them there.

Our selection process.

Our selection process should enable all parties to make an informed decision. It should not only allow us to find out whether an applicant is right for us, but also allow the applicant to see whether they can imagine working with us in a specific role.

Depending on the applicant’s entry level and desired occupation, we’ll use a variety of selection criteria and selection tools to assess each candidate.

At the start of each selection process we will consider the job requirements of the specific position. From these we’ll develop our selection criteria, and decide how to best measure these criteria in order to reach a decision.

Selection Criteria.

Depending on the position, we work with an individual set of criteria in the pre-selection and final selection. In the end, it’s the candidate's overall impression that counts – this depends on how well the knowledge, characteristics and abilities of the candidate fit our defined requirements. Age, gender or cultural background have absolutely no influence on our selection decision. All applicants are welcome.

However, a few basic requirements play a role in the applicant pre-selection:

  • The grades achieved at school and university influence who we pre-select to a certain extent, but they are not the only factor.
  • Relevant work experience, e.g. from prior employment, internships, etc. is highly relevant. Here it is important to enclose any corresponding proof of employment.
  • Very good knowledge of the languages German and English are required for most positions. Depending on the nature of the position, additional language skills may be required.
  • Experience abroad is advantageous, and may even be mandatory for certain jobs of an international nature.
  • We will not consider incomplete or incorrect applications. All documents required in the job advertisement must be included. We will also exclude any applications where false information has deliberately been stated e.g. untruthful indication of better grades.
