Your application documents

We give several tips and information on how you should ideally prepare your application documents.

Covering letter: Make us curious.

Your covering letter should summarise all the important information about you in a short and concise way. The writing style should be natural and uncomplicated. The shorter the sentences, the more dynamic the effect of the letter. Put yourself into the position of the reader. Is your job application appealing? Is there meaning in the text? It is possible to clearly recognise what experience you have and what knowledge you will bring with you? Skip standard formulations and rise above the other applicants in a positive way.

You can orientate yourself around the following questions when writing:

  • For which position are you applying?
  • What relevant experience have you already acquired?
  • What distinguishes you?
  • What interests you about the position for which you are applying?
  • What is your possible starting date?

Curriculum Vitae: Everything at a glance

The CV conveys an overview of your education, professional career and your skills.

Please make sure to show your professional career so far without any gaps. The layout should be preferably tabular, in order to be able to find all the data quickly. Use key words to relate your area of responsibility in the respective company along with the period of employment.

Certificates and work samples

We are in favour of you sending your certificates and references directly together with your job application. We also look forward to your sending work samples for creative positions.
