Some guidelines recommend an advance telephone call, asking "whether the position is still available" or a short "small talk" for a positive evaluation of the application. Of course, personal factors also play an important role for us. Without your application, however, we cannot assign notes to your application and therefore cannot consider them in the review process.
Our recommendation: Feel free to contact us by phone or email after you have carefully read the job description and sent your application - but only if you have specific questions, comments or corrections.
In our offices in Germany, the daily colloquial language is German, whereby most of our documents are in English. Company-wide meetings and telcos are mostly in the English language. Depending on your position, you should be fluent in at least English or German. Understanding English documents is mandatory.
Some of our job descriptions are only available in one language or are automatically translated by our application management system. Please answer them according to your preference either in German or English. Thank you very much!
