What to consider when you prepare your CV

The CV will be all about showing us why you are the best person for the role – based on your work experience, skills and your personality.

Make sure all of this is visible and that you highlight those aspects that are relevant to the role you are applying for.

  • Highlight your key responsibilities and achievements during your career that may be relevant for the new role.

  • Last but not least – try to keep it short and error free.

How to let your Linkedin profile speak for yourself

Your Linkedin Profile is a great opportunity to show us more about yourself.

It will give us an impression of what kind of person you are next to your professional profile.

  • Make sure you have an up to date profile that conveys your personality.

  • The “About” section is the place where you describe your personal brand. Who are you as a person and a professional? What are your key achievements and what drives you?

  • Make sure your experiences match up with your CV. If you like, add photos and videos to illustrate your former work experiences.

  • Your interests will show us what you are passionate about.

How to best prep for your interview

No need to be nervous! We want to get to know you better and get an idea of who you are.

Missing skills can always be taught – passion and personality can’t!
