Job application tips

In Germany, a written job application consists of a cover letter, a curriculum vitae in tabular form with personal details as well as copies of the most important certificates and attestations. It is usual to add a portrait photo to the CV.

Large companies as well as universities, colleges and research institutes are increasingly changing over to online applications, e.g. by means of a form on their careers pages or by e-mail. Unsolicited applications are not very common in Germany.
