Here we have put together a few tips so that you can prepare yourself optimally and your application will also achieve the desired success.
What are your strengths and talents?
Are you more of a hands-on and physical type of person or is the desk your preferred workplace where you juggle numbers or look after customers? Do you need clear work structures or would you rather work creatively?
These or similar questions can help you to find out what you enjoy most and what you are most comfortable with. Also ask your family or friends, because they know you well and can give you many tips.
Show us who you are and what you've been up to!
We also enjoy what we do. Even more so, of course, if we receive a good and meaningful application from you. For us, good means that it is structured, reveals a lot about you as a person and, of course, has a personal touch.
A good structure makes a good first impression.
It is important to us that we can quickly find our way around your application and that it is easy to read. The application folder should contain the following:
We at Stein-Dinse like online applications. This way we save a lot of paper, do something for the environment and your application will be processed faster.
Please send us an e-mail to LStein@stein-dinse.com and attach your application as a pdf document. It should not be larger than 2-3 MB. Unfortunately, we cannot accept Word or similar file formats for security reasons.
If you prefer a more classic format...no problem, of course you are also welcome to send us an application portfolio by post.
You can present your CV very clearly if you divide it into blocks:
What qualifications have you obtained? Which schools and universities did you attend from when to when?
Have you already done any vocational training? Describe your activities briefly in key points.
Special knowledge and qualifications
What do you have that others don't? Have you perhaps already done internships, been abroad or volunteered?
Be sure to include such special experiences and what your tasks are or were there. Do you speak foreign languages, have a driving licence or are you a whiz with certain programmes on your PC? Be sure to let us know.
With a beautiful and appealing design and your individual cover letter, you can give your application a very personal touch and arouse our special interest in you. We want to know as much as possible about you as a person, so don't be shy.
Please do not write your CV as a continuous text, but rather in tabular form. Pick out specific things that you would like to describe in more detail. We want to know what drives you and what you want to do. Why are you good at certain things?
For example, what did you enjoy most during a work placement or holiday job? Why were you given certain tasks? Which school subject was particularly easy for you or which project motivated you to be particularly committed?
A photo on the cover page or on the CV can enhance your application, but it is not compulsory. However, it gives your application a personal touch and certainly underlines what you are writing in the application.
We hope that our tips will help you. Of course, you can also call or write us if you have any questions.
Let's go! We look forward to receiving your application.
