Speculative application - The introduction

The cover letter for a speculative application is basically the first sample of your work that you deliver to the company. The first few sentences in the cover letter often decide whether a personnel manager wants to take a closer look at your documents. What pitfalls should you avoid in the introduction to your application? Do not write "I hereby apply for the position as......". The reason for your application is already in the subject of the covering letter and does not have to be   . . . > > >

Application ABC - What does what mean?

Some of the terms used in job offers, on the labour market or in application tips are not familiar to us right away. What is meant when the "CV" is required? What are "soft skills" and what are "hard skills"? Here are some explanations: Assessment Centre (AC) - A form of personnel selection in which applicants are put to the test in a variety of ways over several days, e.g. in the form of presentations, group work, self-assessment and much more.

The job interview - What hiring managers don't like

While many job applicants prepare thoroughly for an interview and make an effort to appear appropriately dressed and on time to the hiring manager, there is also the exact opposite. After a successful job application letter (not only after an unsolicited application) and the invitation to an interview, there are still quite a few stumbling blocks. Can you imagine that more than a third of the applicants show up late for an interview and that with a delay of up to one hour? Is it conceivable to you that 26 per cent of applicants are late for an interview?   . . . > > >

Hobbies in the curriculum vitae

What do you do in your free time? And - which of these activities can be called a hobby? Above all - do hobbies belong on your CV? If yes - which ones? The answer: It can make sense to list your hobbies in your CV, but it is not absolutely necessary. Here too - as with many other criteria in an application - it depends on the attitude of the recruiter. While some personnel managers can happily do without applicants letting them in on their leisure activities, for other personnel managers this is even very w   . . . > > >

The good application photo

A vending machine or leisure photo does not belong in the application documents. A good application photo also shows your own interest in the job.
First impressions often determine what the hiring manager will do next, and this can also apply to the photo in your application. Imagine that company XY is looking for an executive assistant. What should the photo of the applicant look like? Is a photo in a revealing bikini from your last beach holiday appropriate? Or do the personnel managers want to see a portrait of a woman looking serious, wearing a high-necked blouse and with her hair arranged in a bun? You will now think both examples are mercilessly exaggerated - and there   . . . > > >

Applicant analysis

Before the interview, you should inform yourself thoroughly about the company so that you can score points as an applicant.
The first step has been taken - your application seems to have gone down quite well with the personnel manager, because the date for the interview has been set! Now a queasy feeling creeps in. You would like to know how you as an applicant will be received by the interviewer and what the focus of the selection process will be.   . . . > > >

The telephone interview

n the display of your telephone a number you don't know is shown. You have no time at all and are already in a bad mood. Annoyed and completely unfriendly, you call in "Who's disturbing?!" The caller is a company to which you recently applied and which (so far) is interested in you. This could turn an opportunity into a rejection, because it happens from time to time that employers contact you unexpectedly and without a deadline after you have applied.

Application via smartphone

The smartphone is fully integrated into everyday life. Even smartphone job applications are possible. Mobile recruiting is the magic word
The smartphone has become part of everyday life for many of us. It is omnipresent, always at hand and many users do not even leave the house without their smartphone. Researchers at the University of Bonn used an app to evaluate the usage behaviour of around 60,000 users. According to the study, people look at their mobile phones up to 88 times a day, on average every 18 minutes. We spend about 2.5 hours a day using it, and for 17 to 25 year-olds it is   . . . > > >

Application ABC - terms for the job search simply explained

Some of the terms used in job offers, on the labour market or in application tips are not familiar to us right away. What is meant when the "CV" is required?

Here are some explanations: Assessment Centre (AC) - A form of personnel selection in which applicants are put to the test in a variety of ways over several days, e.g. in the form of presentations, group work, self-assessment and much more.

The hidden job market - use it with IPSER!

When we are looking for a new job, we usually take the opportunity to look for a suitable job in job advertisements. Be it on the internet or in printed press products. Hardly anyone is aware that we use at most 30 to 40 percent of our opportunities in this way. Because there are far more offers on the labour market than we can find at first go. For this, we have to know and use the hidden job market. But what is the so-called "hidden job market"? There is the following explanation: "This refers to the vacancies that are not publicly advertised.   . . . > > >
