Prove your qualifications with references, certificates, or work samples. Limit yourself to the evidence required for the job.
- School reports: Enclose your last report card or your final report. With many years of professional experience, you can - depending on your profession - do without it.
- Certificates of the apprenticeship or degree: Please enclose the degree certificate. If you graduated a long time ago, the certificate could be omitted.
- Employment references: If possible, you should submit these from every former employer. Internship certificates are only helpful for young professionals.
- Further education certificates/seminar certificates: Name relevant further education and training.
Scan references and certificates. When applying by post, do not send originals but copies.
In some cases, employers require additional attachments to the CV, such as a letter of motivation. Make it clear what you are particularly interested in about the position and the company. In contrast to the cover letter, where you emphasize your professional aptitude, you mainly state your reasons in the letter of motivation.
Complete application documents - that's what we mean.
If an employer would like complete application documents, please send:
- Write to,
- Cover sheet (optional; if you use it: with photo),
- CV (if you do not use a cover sheet: with a photo),
- Certificates and any other attachments.
