Tips Regarding Your Application
We receive many applications each year. We are looking for young people who want to be challenged and promoted, who will tackle their tasks with a strong sense of motivation, and who are prepared to learn something new. To leave an excellent first impression, simply follow a couple of essential tips.
- Send complete application documents! These include an application letter, a complete resume starting with the first elementary school class, and at least one current certificate.
- The application letter must always be addressed to the person shown as contact in the job advertisement or on our website.
- Inform yourself about CODICO and think about what you like about the company in particular. You are welcome to point that out in your application letter (e.g. "What interests me in particular about your company is…")
- Your resume should provide an overview of your school career and your first professional experience – if already available. But it is your personality that weighs more. You are welcome to mention any interests or hobbies you currently engage in or did so in the past.
- Please provide a portrait photo for your resume. Selfies or party pictures are better suited for private purposes.
- Send your application by e-mail.
- Please send your complete application documents by e-mail.
- If we like your application documents, we will invite you for a personal interview with our apprenticeship officer.
- If your first interview is convincing, we will invite you to another meeting with your future trainer and our warehouse manager.
- If both sides agree, our confirmation and the signing of the apprenticeship contract will follow.
- Show up in time. It is definitely more pleasant to wait a few minutes for your interviewer in our beautiful premises than to arrive completely stressed at the last minute.
- Inform yourself about our company on our website prior to your interview.
- Dress code: A suit and a tie are not necessary, but put some proper clothes on and you can't go wrong.
- You don't need to be nervous. Our interviews take place in a relaxed atmosphere.
- Be honest and authentic. We want to get to know the real you. This is the best way to find out if you suit us.
