Valuable facts about your applications
Correct application - direct or proactive?
Because our advertised jobs are always combined with a concrete demand, the prospects of success of a direct job application are basically higher.
Nevertheless, proactive applications are equally interesting for SMC, if for instance, a job is already planned but not published yet.
Proactive applications should indicate in which position you would see yourself and which kind of working field you prefer.
Where does my application arrive after sending it?

Can I send a written application?
An electronic application via online form or E-Mail has the advantage that we can process and forward your documents faster, directly and in a very simple way. A further bonus is the cost saving for application files and the postage as well as the advantage that we receive your application faster.
