How do I apply properly?

How do I write a correct job application? This questions comes to the mind of everone seeking for new jop opportunities. There are plenty of application guides with the same run-of-the-mill phrases. This is not what we are looking for. We are not searching for standard employees but for colleagues who fit into our team.

An application should provide the answers to the following questions:

  • Who are you and what characterises you?

  • What is your education and your hands-on experience?

  • Why is the offered position exactly right for you?

  • Would I like to work for gvf VersicherungsMakler AG or gruuna?

  • What else should we know about you?

A meaningful application should contain the following:

  • an indivisualised cover letter (max. one page)

  • a complete curriculum vitae

  • relevant documents and certificates

Another frequent question concerns the style of the application. Should it be classic and in a folder or more casual by e-mail?

We are an environmentally conscious company and we try to minimise our paper consumption. In addition, we work with state-of-the-art technical equipment and sending e-mails is our primary means of communication. This attitude we would like to see in our applicants as well and therefore we ask you :

  • to send your application by e-mail only (applications by mail will not be returned)

  • to attach all relevant documents in maximally 3 PDF files (ZIP files will not be considered)

We consider it as part of good manners and business practice to respond to all application. You will receive an answer from us.
