ALL parents can help

ALL parents can help their child with applications. 19.1 Meeting deadlines is what counts: Application deadlines! (Integrated) career and vocational education and training ((duale) Ausbildung): Applications must be submitted between 12 to 6 months before training starts. This can be done before receiving the last report card. Example: Your son is in year 9 and would like to start career and vocational training after year 10. You can start submitting applications in the summer before he begins year 10. The earlier, the better! Work-study degree programmes (duales Studium): Applications must also be submitted a year in advance! University or higher education institutions: In this case, wait for the final report card and then start applying. Example: Your daughter is in year 12 and will be completing her Abitur. She can submit her application for admission to university in the summer after finishing her Abitur. 19.2 A person used to write applications only on paper. However, today there are many options. It used to be that there was only one way to submit an application: on paper. However, today more and more businesses do not want applications on paper, they want them electronically. Applications per email (also known as online applications) are possible for most companies these days. This saves applicants printing and post charges and businesses the paperwork. Another type of application is an application using an online form. Generally, this form is a mask on a company’s website and has to be filled in step by step. Nevertheless, the classic application on paper requiring a photo and an applicant’s signature does still exist. Your child can personally drop these applications off or send them via post. … 78 …

19.3 Admission or acceptance right with the first application: It could happen, but it’s unlikely! In addition to your child’s dream job or dream company, he or she should have a backup plan – plan B – and better yet a plan C. Nowadays, it is customary to send applications to various enterprises. There fore, don’t just send off one application! Send off many! 19.4 You only get a brief chance with your application: Every little thing counts! Human resource managers in large companies receive hundreds of applications every year and must decide in a few minutes whether or not an application has made a good impression and if the person should be invited to an interview. If an applicant is not invited to interview, it is frequently because of mistakes found in the application which can very easily be avoided. Important note: Every business is different. That is why you should first find out how the company likes to see applications. Most of the time, this is specified in the advertisement. An incorrect way can lead to the application being immediately sorted out. Example: A company has expressed that it only wants online applications. Applications that arrive in the post will be returned or land in the wastepaper bin. 19.5 Parents can help their children before an application is sent off via post. Absolutely avoid the following mistakes: crinkled paper, paperclips, coffee, tea or grease stains on any paper, missing signature, unsuitable photo, spelling mistakes, wrong company address, or failure to attach supporting documents. … 79 …
