Your application is your business card!
After you have found the perfect job opening, it is time to work on your application. If a cover letter is required, it should be adapted to the position you are applying for. Please be sure to highlight the skills, experiences and competencies that are relevant for the role and make you an ideal candidate. The best cover letters are short and to the point. Feel free to use a generic greeting, no one will think you are a poor applicant if you could not find out the name of the hiring manager. A few questions that your cover letter should answer:
Your resume is the key to a good application. Well structured, it will help you to highlight your professional experience and achievements so far. The font size must be clearly legible and the overall layout and formatting must be clean and simple. Start with your personal details, followed by information about your education and courses taken, your professional experience, knowledge of foreign languages, international experience and other relevant activities in your career, personal interests and activities.
Preparing for an interview
Get to know Allianz and its business sphere as deeply as possible, as well as the corporate culture, strategy and values. Be sure that you know enough about the latest trends and developments in your field of expertise, the industry and the market. Find out about the main obligations and tasks required for the specific position for which you are applying. Get ready to show us why you want to work for our company, why we have to hire you, and what particular qualities and experience make you the perfect candidate for the job. During the interview, both your professional skills and your communication skills are assessed, as well as the extent to which you fit into our corporate culture.
Answer the questions carefully and as competently as possible. Before doing so, take the time to assess what the interviewer actually wants to know, then answer briefly and accurately. In case you need a little more time to think, don’t hesitate to ask for it. Be sure to justify your answers with specific examples from your previous professional experience and knowledge. We advise you to take an active part in the interview and not to hesitate to ask questions about the position and Allianz as a company.
We wish you good luck!
