Response times 

We will send you a confirmation on receipt of your application, so you can be sure that we received your documents.

You will also hear back from us in case we come to the conclusion that your profile does not match the posted position.

Your job interview 

Congratulations! Your application was successful and we invited you for a job interview - so what's next?

The job interview is not only an opportunity to advertise yourself, but also to get a good understanding about the position, your potential employer and the people you might regularly work with in the future. And of course we are interested to get to know you, your professional profile and your personality.

Show us who you are: What is your previous work experience? What is your motivation and what do you want to achieve? Your personality and soft-skills are just as important for us as your professional expertise. And don't miss out on the opportunity to ask questions, e.g. about the company and the position. 

At the end of the day the goal is that both parties know what to expect from one another. Of course - a job interview is quite exciting, but there is nothing to worry about. It goes without saying that you should show up on time.

Second interview

If the job interview convinced us that you are the right choice for the position, we usually invite you for a second interview. This time it is all about details: You will have a chance to get to know your potential future colleagues and we will give you a little tour of the company and your designated workplace. Furthermore we will discuss contract terms like starting date, salary and the probation period.
