    Step 1: The interview

    Plan sufficient time for getting to our offices so that you are relaxed when you arrive. Be aware that we will ask you about basic details in your CV again. Here, you should be able to talk about all the qualifications and experience you have that are relevant for the position. Aside from all the formalities, however, we are much more interested in getting to know you as a person. You should therefore come across as authentically as possible. Just be yourself!

  • Step 2: Getting to know you better

    If the interview has gone well it’s very likely that we will invite you to our offices for a day to get to know you better. On this day, you will get to know the team and will be led through the relevant department. We have had good experiences with this “trial day” as not only can we gain a more detailed picture of you and your qualifications, you can also see if you feel comfortable working with us. Ultimately, you will be making an important decision which should make you happy in the coming years.

  • Steps 3: Welcome to the team!

    You've impressed us in the interview and signed a contract with us following your “trial day”. Now it’s time for the onboarding phase, during which we offer you sufficient time to orient yourself and learn about your new duties. It is important for us be at your side supporting you. Don't hesitate to ask colleagues if you have questions - our door is always open. In the first few months, our managers spend a lot of time with new employees and regularly carry out feedback discussions in order to ease the orientation process, define targets and listen to suggestions.


    We look forward to a successful collaboration with you!
