Tips: Application

1.Cover letter

When you are writing a cover letter, it should be concise with specific updated information. Your cover letter will include a contact section, an introduction to the recruiter, information on why you are qualified for the specific job, a closing, and your signature. The goal of your cover letter is to make a case for getting selected for a job interview, so it’s important to include all required information, along with a compelling argument that you’re a strong candidate for the position.

The closer a match to the job description, the higher your chances of getting picked for an interview. Include information on how you have the qualifications or experience required for the vacancy. Don’t repeat what’s in your resume. Rather, focus on how the skills you have will benefit the company

The way the information is listed, and the format, will depend on how effective you will be joining a new company.

2.Detailed CV in English
In addition to your personal details the CV should list your education and professional experience in a   chronological order (please state day/month/year). Required information are the position you held, details about your employer (e. g.   size of the hotel, number of stars etc.) as well as a description of your responsibilities in note form. Furthermore you should describe   your  skills, proficiency and qualifications in particular detail considering that the CV is your “business card” for future employers.

3.Copies of your certificates
Your documents should preferably contain job references from your previous employers (max. 5). Please also include diplomas   (university, apprenticeship or similar) and certificates (e. g. language course, further education, STCW certificate etc.).

4.Photo
Recent photos should be attached to your CV. Please send a full body photo.

5.References
Please indicate 2 (previous) employers (contact person, telephone number, e-mail address) who we may contact in order to enquire   about  you. Preferably this would be your current superior and/or the superior of your last 2 jobs.
