FAQ - frequently asked questions

How should I apply?
We prefer applications that are sent to us via our application address bewerbung@kwa.ac. We can process these documents much more quickly and get back to you sooner.

What do you consider to be a full application?
In order to get a good idea of your skills, we require a personal cover letter, your CV, other meaningful documents, such as references from previous employers and certificates of your final degree (Master, Bachelor). We also look forward to seeing your portfolio of projects! Please compile all documents and create one PDF file. Please also let us know which position you are applying for and which location you are interested in.

May I also send you a speculative application?
Yes, of course!

Yes. We prefer to communicate via email. We will therefore also send you an acknowledgement of receipt and invitation for an interview as an email.

Unfortunately not. Due to the number of applications we receive, it’s not possible for us to reply to each applicant personally.

How quickly will I receive a reply?
All persons concerned treat job applications as a top priority and usually react to interesting applications within one or, at the latest, two weeks.

How are applicants selected?
