Frequently asked questions
What is the best way to apply?
Our online career portal makes the application process quick and easy. When you’ve found a job that matches your interests and qualifications, you can apply by uploading your resume/CV or even your LinkedIn profile. If you aren’t ready to apply or you don’t yet see a job that is the perfect match, you can fill in our online form, so we can get to know you better.
And no need to worry – we always apply the relevant data security regulatory standards for your country to all the information you supply.
What should be included in my application?
Our career portal offers you the opportunity to share information about yourself, your skills and your achievements. You don’t have to fill in every section, but you must complete all the fields marked with a red asterisk. Attachments up to 5MB can also be uploaded.
You also have the opportunity to include a cover letter. Use this to tell us why you’re interested in the role and to highlight your qualifications and experience that show how you’d fit in at Covestro. For example, tell us about when you’ve shown curiosity or courage in your work, or give an example of your individual thinking. We encourage you to create a profile so that you can check the status of your application at any time.
How long does the process take?
After applying, you’ll get an automated email confirming that our recruiting team has received your application. All newly received applications are reviewed by our recruiters as quickly as possible.
What can I expect in the job interview?
If you pass our selection process, our recruitment team will contact you to set up an interview. This may be a phone interview, in person or as part of an assessment. The main purpose is to get to know each other and find out if we’re a good fit.
We try to make it fairly relaxed because we want to meet the ‘real’ you. However, you’ll get the most out of it if you do some preparation. For instance, think about how your qualifications and experience make you the best person for the role. It’s also a good idea to prepare some examples of how you reflect our culture and values – when you’ve been curious, courageous or worked in multi-national or multi-disciplinary teams. Don’t forget to prepare some questions for us!
If we decide to make you an offer, we’ll contact you to talk through the details.
