When you send us your application, we review it carefully. The time it takes for this process depends on the number of other applications we receive for this position, but usually we respond to you within 4 to 8 weeks at the latest.
The first response you receive from us is an automated one that is generated as soon as your application is received successfully. If you do not receive confirmation of receipt, please check your spam folder or otherwise get in touch with the contact listed on the job description.
The next step is to review your application. First we check whether your statements fulfil the minimum and formal criteria for the position. For instance, for an internship you must be enrolled at a university or be in a gap year between your Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. If you do not fulfil these criteria, you will receive a rejection letter from us. Otherwise, we forward your application to the relevant department.
If particular statements/documents are missing, we will contact you about this and ask you to send these on to us.
The department now assesses your application purely from a professional point of view. Thereafter you receive either a written or telephone invitation to an interview or a preliminary online test, or a rejection.
