Tips for applicants

#1 General

Every application is unique and says something about your personality and qualities. By submitting it you leave us with a first impression.
That is why you should take your time and avoid mistakes. Compile your application carefully and completely.

#2 Cover letter

Motivation and suitability
In your application we would like to learn what motivates you to work in the chosen department at Mayser and how you became aware of us.

Layout and content
Write the cover letter in your own style. Show the strengths and talents that you have to offer and where you have been able to demonstrate them in the past. One page is sufficient.

 

#3 CV

Structure
Your CV should be in tabular form and should have a clear structure. Start with your current employment. Include complete contact data (with phone number and e-mail address) in case we need additional information. When it is complete, the CV must be dated with the current date.

Photo of applicant
A photo is not obligatory. If you include one, it should be up to date and of good quality. “Selfies” and clips from group or party photos are absolutely unsuitable.

#3 CV

Content
In addition to your personal background, you also need to list your strengths and skills. When stating your IT and foreign language skills, we ask that you provide a personal assessment
(e.g. English: basic skills – fluent – business fluent – native speaker). 

Miscellaneous
Any gaps should be explained and never disguised. Feel free to list private activities, as long as they are relevant. We want to get to know you as a whole person and welcome information about your social commitment.

#4 Additional documents

Supplement your application with your most recent school reports, university diplomas, and employer references. You can also include any relevant certificates.
