How to apply

The key to your new career at DB Schenker

Your application materials give us an initial impression of who you are. Your application should therefore provide us with clear information regarding your qualifications, interests, and personality.

There are four ways for you to apply to DB Schenker:

  • Via our online portal, which we prefer because it enables us to process your application quickly.
  • Via e-mail, in which case you should send us a short introductory letter in the e-mail itself and attach all relevant documents as PDF files (maximum of 5 MB). You may also send your application by traditional mail:

SCHENKER & CO AG
Sarah Jaksch
HR Recruiting
Stella-Klein-Löw-Weg 11
A - 1020 Wien

  • If the position you’re interested in isn’t currently available, but you have a clear idea of what you’re looking for, we would be very happy to receive an unsolicited application from you. We’re always looking for talented and motivated individuals!

The following list of four questions will help you make sure your application is perfect:

1. Is your application complete?

A fully completed application will contain your cover letter, your resume in a table format (starting with your last job), and all certificates and references relevant to the position you’re applying for.

2. Does your cover letter make a good impression?

Your cover letter should be no longer than one page and should give us a good idea of who you are, what you’ve done professionally to date, and why you’re applying to our company. Keep in mind that your cover letter offers you an opportunity to give your application a personal touch, attract our interest, and convince us that you’re the right person for the job.

If you would like to give us more information on your motivation for applying than one page will allow, you can use the “third page method.” This means you can write an additional motivation letter that explains in greater detail why you’re interested in a particular position at our company. Simply attach this third page to your resume or add it to your resume file.

3. Have you checked the spelling and layout?

It’s very important to avoid spelling mistakes and grammar and syntax errors. You should also make sure your documents have a clear structure and that you’ve followed basic writing and formatting rules, such as those concerning the proper use of paragraphs, fonts, font sizes etc.


4. Have you focused on relevant information?

Think carefully about what you want to communicate in your resume and which certificates, references, and qualifications are relevant. If you can answer YES to all of the above questions, then you’re ready to send off your application. We look forward to meeting you!
