What happens after you send in your application?

We follow a clearly structured procedure when we go through your file, and it depends on whether you are applying for a vacancy or sending an unsolicited application.

Applying directly

If you have applied for a specific position, your file will be entered in our application-management system. Shortly thereafter you will receive a confirmation. Your file will be sent directly to the appropriate HR department.

Once we have a closer look at your file, we will invite you to the first interview if your profile appeals to us. This meeting helps us get to know each other and usually lasts around 60 minutes. Depending on the nature of the position, there may then be other interviews which focus more on topics outside of your field.

If all of the interviews have gone well and we have successfully negotiated your contract, then there is nothing else standing in your way as far as working at Fresenius is concerned.

Unsolicited applications

Your unsolicited ("cold") application is sent to a central pool of similar applicants. Please use the cover letter and the appropriate fields of the application form to indicate the positions and areas of technical expertise you are interested in. Suitable applications will be sent to the appropriate departments. If a match cannot be found right away, your file will remain in our pool of applicants.  You always have the option of actively deleting your application.

The interview

Have you been invited to an interview? Then you have already reached an important milestone. Now it's time to put your best foot forward.

  • Present yourself, your experience and your competence in the best light possible, but as you do so, stay natural and authentic.
  • Please use the confirmation of the appointment as an occasion to learn more about the interview and the person you will be talking to.
  • Make sure you learn about directions, travel time, parking options and the surroundings in advance.
  • Be professional in how you present yourself: be on time and look the part.
  • Your demeanor and qualifications should impress your interviewers, and so should your knowledge about the industry and related developments and trends.
  • Show us why you are the best candidate for this position and Fresenius.
