Application tips

Your application is the key to a career change.

Your application is the first impression we get of you. It is therefore important that your application provides a clear and convincing picture of your skills, personality and career expectations.

In the following we have a few tips for you that could be helpful for your application.

Application checklist

"A good application should always include a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae and your references."

The cover letter:

A personal cover letter should arouse our interest: what is your motivation for applying and what are your career wishes? What position are you applying for and what have you done to date? What are your strengths?

This information helps us to get an initial impression of you, your qualifications and your career goals. Ideally, you should also comment on all of the most significant requirements listed in the employment ad.

The CV:

"The CV should definitely be up to date, have a clear structure and be designed in an appealing manner."

Your CV should include information about you as a person as well as information about your education and all important steps in your career path to date.

Do you have an interesting hobby, do you do volunteer work or have you perhaps published specialist literature? Great! That is something you should definitely include in your CV.

You should also feel free to work with links and, for example, make reference to your XING or Linkedin profile.


"References are a key component of an application. They give us recruiters an overview of your educational achievements and the tasks you have performed to date."

Ideally, they also convey a further impression of you as a person. Please be careful to send us only those references and certificates that are relevant for the position.

Should you have any additional references, you can include them in your documentation.
