Tips on Applying for a Job

The application:

Every application should consist of a letter of application, a current CV, and copies of all relevant degrees, certificates, further education and training measures, etc.

The application letter:

Your letter should be short and succinct.

Quote the reference number of the position you are applying for in the subject line. All of our job advertisements have a reference number (print and online media, homepage).

Outline why you are applying for the job and explain what qualifications make you a suitable candidate.

In order to help us plan better, it would be useful to state the earliest date you could start work at Jülich.

The CV:

Include everything you have done so far in your professional career. Give the dates of employment, name of employer/company, and describe your responsibilities using keywords.

Make sure that your CV is clearly structured. A tabular CV is one way of achieving this.


If possible, include copies of certificates, testimonials, reports etc. for all of your qualifications and for each job you have had.

Copies should be easy to read and where necessary certified.


We look forward to your receiving your application and hope that you are successful!
