You never know...
You have most likely read all of our pages about the different ways you can get started with us as well as the application procedure at ThyssenKrupp. But perhaps you have a question we have not answered yet. If so, our key contacts are more than happy to help out. Thank you for your interest in our company!
Welcome to our FAQ section. It has been arranged by area of interest so you can navigate through it more quickly.
- I would like to apply to more than one advertised position or location. What’s the best way?
You can apply directly to the individual subsidiary which interests you. If there is more than one, you can also apply through the ThyssenKrupp Central Application Service. They will carefully review your application and forward it to any subsidiary which has an opening to match your profile.
- Are unsolicited applications worth it? Should I apply exclusively to advertised opportunities?
We are always looking for talented people to support us in our work. So we are delighted to see individuals take the initiative and create their own opportunities when applying. For more information, head over to our unsolicited applications section.
- How long does the application process take?
Once you have gotten in touch with us, we usually need between four to six weeks to decide if you will be joining our team.
- I have a start date in mind - how far in advance should I apply?
As early as possible. The reasons: we need some time to review your application and start making initial selections. What is more, some areas have pre-determined, fixed start dates.
- To whom do I send my application?
If you are applying for a specific opening, the description will almost always include information on whom to contact. Otherwise, send your application to the personnel department at the ThyssenKrupp subsidiary you would like to work at. If you are still not sure, just pick up the phone – we are happy to point you in the right direction.
- Which application formats do you prefer?
You are more than welcome to send us a conventional application by mail, but a paperless application – by using our online form – is much easier and faster, plus it is very clearly arranged. That is why we prefer these two formats.
- What makes a good application?
A good application consists of a cover letter, résumé, and up-to-date certificates. Even more importantly, it gives us a good picture of your expertise and character. We have compiled more precise information on this very subject in our application pointers section.
