Tips on job requirements
We derived the ALBA Group’s competency model from our set of corporate values. We developed our tips on submitting job applications rigorously, because our goal is systematic inquiry and critical analysis of existing corporate competencies and abilities on the level of organisation, management, and staff. This enables both systematic utilisation and development of these existing competencies, and their efficient alignment to strategic corporate goals, thereby ensuring competitive ability over the long term.
Which position should I apply for, and why?
The most decisive aspect of your application is that all information about you is presented as attractively and completely as possible. This includes:
- Cover letter (about one page)
- Personal data sheet
- Employment and training certificates
- School-leaving certificate and other school records
- Certificates for additional qualifications
Why is the cover letter so important?
The cover letter should convey to us why you are the right one for the particular position you are seeking. In it, you should answer the following questions:
- Why are you applying for this position?
- Why are you applying to work with the ALBA Group?
Do you possess any qualifications beyond those required by the job description?
What should be included on my personal data sheet?
Your personal data sheet, or resume, gives us all the important information about your life, studies, and work experience. Ideally, a consistent direction toward the position you are seeking will emerge from your personal data sheet.
How should I prepare for my upcoming interview?
The personal interview serves as an opportunity for you and us to answer any open questions. In order that both sides can go into the interview armed with clear objectives, please inform yourself beforehand in detail about the ALBA Group and the job profile for the position.
