How to apply
An application should always be complete, irrespective of whether you are applying on traditional paper materials with a folder or electronically via email. You must take care that all sections of an application such as the accompanying letter, CV and enclosures are not only included, but are also dean and tidy. Spelling mistakes, creases or coffee stains give the impression that the interest in a training or internship position was not serious.

Your accompanying letter should make clear why you want to secure the stated training role and why you would like to work at PILLER. The more precisely you have looked at PILLER and the job, the more likely things are to work out later.
