Application tips

The right way to reach your goal

You’ve selected your apprenticeship and found the right place to do it. Now there’s only one obstacle between you and your goal: a successful application. Here you can find out what happens during the application process and what you need to be aware of:

How does an application process work?

Naturally, first of all we need your application. You should submit it online via our applicant management system. If your application wins us over we will invite you to an aptitude test in which we will review your skills and qualifications. If you pass this first step you will be invited to a personal interview so we can get to know you better. If you can win us over here too, the last step is an appointment with the company doctor who will check that you are fit to do the job. The only thing that’s still missing then is your signature on the apprenticeship contract and you can get started on the agreed date. We look forward to meeting you!

When should I apply?

To ensure you secure one of the highly popular apprenticeship places, you should apply as early as possible. After all, an application process takes time. So you should apply nine months before completing your school leaving certificate. You can see which apprenticeships are available in our advertisements. It’s important to plan enough time to prepare your application documents carefully – it can take a few weeks.

What does a perfect application look like?

It’s really important that your application documents are complete. Easier said than done, you think? No – it’s actually really easy: The online application guides you smoothly through the process. Make sure you have the following documents available in digital form: cover letter, tabular résumé, your most recent reference and internship certificates.

What should I avoid doing at all costs?

There is of course a difference between applying for an apprenticeship position or a position as a manager. We understand that it’s your first application. Nevertheless, we will mark you down for untidy documents, lots of spelling mistakes or missing information. It’s OK to let your parents, teachers or experienced friends help you a bit. After all – four eyes can see better than two!

How can I prepare for tests and interviews?

If you can keep to two rules, you’re sure to convince us that you are the right apprentice for us! So you should simply bear the following in mind when it comes to the aptitude test, where we to test your knowledge and skills, and the personal interview:

Firstly: Stay calm and be yourself. Clothing and punctuality are also very important. The first impression you make on our HR staff is often a deciding factor. So smart clothing is a must. But you should feel comfortable in what you wear as otherwise you won’t come across as authentic. Your appearance should not be too casual or too styled. This and being on time shows us that you are motivated and taking the meeting seriously.

Secondly: Find out about your dream job and thyssenkrupp Steel Europe AG. You can do so via our websites, the homepages of the Chambers of Industry and Commerce and our contacts.
