Here’s what Noven­tiz employees say

Inter­view with Son­ja Gern­hardt, Human Resour­ces at the Noven­tiz Group on how to make your appli­ca­ti­on a suc­cess

I’m the Head of Human Resour­ces and Orga­ni­sa­ti­on. I joi­n­ed Noven­tiz about 16 years ago and have been actively invol­ved in deve­lo­ping the company’s staff struc­tu­re and orga­ni­sa­ti­on – that’s rather spe­cial. I’m the point of cont­act for can­di­da­tes and poten­ti­al can­di­da­tes, ans­we­ring all their ques­ti­ons – and tho­se of all employees, of cour­se. I love the varie­ty and fle­xi­bi­li­ty of my job and I real­ly enjoy working with peo­p­le. You get to meet a lot of inte­res­t­ing peo­p­le and hear their sto­ries, espe­ci­al­ly during the recruit­ment pro­cess.

I find it hel­pful to include a per­so­nal cover let­ter with an appli­ca­ti­on. It shows that you are genui­ne­ly inte­res­ted and is a gre­at addi­ti­on to the CV, which is more of a fac­tu­al out­line of your back­ground. A cover let­ter adds a per­so­nal touch to your appli­ca­ti­on. You are wel­co­me to sub­mit your appli­ca­ti­on in digi­tal­ly – our pro­cess does not requi­re a paper copy, and a digi­tal ver­si­on saves resour­ces. And if you have any ques­ti­ons, just let us know. The best way to cont­act me is by e‑mail.

I would recom­mend that you find out about Noven­tiz by visi­ting our web­site. We regu­lar­ly post about our com­pa­ny on our Lin­ke­dIn chan­nel, so that’s ano­ther good source to get a first impres­si­on. If you have any unans­we­red ques­ti­ons, wri­te them down and ask them during the inter­view.

Can­di­da­tes should think about how best to pre­sent them­sel­ves and why they would be a good fit for the role. Fee­ling ner­vous or exci­ted during the job inter­view is nor­mal and not­hing to worry about. If you’re fee­ling very stres­sed, taking a deep breath can help. Other than that, I would just recom­mend being yours­elf.

We usual­ly invi­te can­di­da­tes to come to our Mars­dorf office in per­son for an initi­al inter­view. Apart from mys­elf, the head of the rele­vant Noven­tiz depart­ment will be pre­sent, so it’s a small group. The inter­view lasts about an hour. Once we have intro­du­ced our­sel­ves, the can­di­da­te will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to tell us about thems­elf. We will then intro­du­ce our com­pa­ny and descri­be the role in more detail. The­re will be ple­nty of time for fur­ther ques­ti­ons and dis­cus­sion. At the end of the inter­view, I will explain the gene­ral con­di­ti­ons of the poten­ti­al employ­ment con­tract.

The most important thing is that you’re com­for­ta­ble. In my view, the­re is no need for a suit and tie – unless it makes you feel more at ease. Per­so­nal­ly wouldn’t go for a faded, tat­te­red T‑shirt, though. I would recom­mend dres­sing neat and tidy in a way that is authen­tic and com­for­ta­ble.

Per­so­nal­ly, I like it that my job is very fle­xi­ble and that I can work inde­pendent­ly. The opti­on to work from home and fle­xi­ble hours makes Noven­tiz a fami­ly-fri­end­ly employ­er that sup­ports a healt­hy work-life balan­ce. What’s more, Noven­tiz offers jobs with a pur­po­se in a for­ward-loo­king indus­try.

Just go ahead and send us your appli­ca­ti­on! We will see in the inter­view if it would be a good fit. I’m more than hap­py to recei­ve unso­li­ci­ted appli­ca­ti­ons. We are gro­wing all the time and some­ti­mes a poten­ti­al job may not be adver­ti­sed yet.
