FAQ

You have further questions?
Perhaps we can answer them right away.

Can I send a speculative application?

 
Yes. Simply send us an e-mail to career@remove-this.bu-st.de with a short profile and your preferred position.

How will my application reach you?

 
If you are able, please apply electronically. This shortens the processing time (and therefore your waiting time) and saves you the cost of shipping and materials. You will immediately receive a confirmation of receipt electronically and thus can be sure that your application has been received by us.

Postal application –
Will I get my documents back after the application process?

 
If we should not employ you, you will certainly get your application back.

Which documents should I attach to my application?

 
Cover letter
One of the most important documents of your application is the cover letter: please explain us why you want to work with us, and why we should choose you. You don’t need to rephrase your resume, but get us interested in you. Why should we get to know you personally? Make us curious!

CV
In your CV you include your education and your career. Any gaps in your resume should be explained (e.g. studies abroad, application phases, parental leave ...). Certainly we are also interested in your language and computer skills as well as your hobbies and any other relevant information about yourself.

References
Please enclose the most important certificates and references (at least the most recent job reference). If we need further references or information, we will contact you.

Will my application be kept confidential?

 
Yes, of course. Please let us know if we should not call you during certain hours of the day.

Do I get a message when my application has been received?

 
Yes, you will immediately receive an automatic confirmation of receipt. If you do not receive it, please contact us immediately.

How long will it take until I will be contacted by you?

 
In general, the processing time is approximately 3 weeks.

How does the application process work?

 
The pre-selection is based on the application documents. Subsequently two interviews will usually take place. The second interview contains a role play.

Where can I find directions?

 
For directions please see Contact.

Do I get my travel expenses reimbursed?

 
Yes, for this we need the original receipts and a cover letter including:

– Date of the interview
– Bank details
– Your full name
– Overview of expenses incurred

We will then transfer your expenses to your account.
Please confirm your expected travel expenses with us when arranging the interview. These should be approved by us in advance.
