Questions / FAQ

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions. However, please get in touch with your nearest GK location, if you have any further unanswered issues.

In order to protect our applicants and employees as best as possible, we have adapted our application process to the current conditions. All interviews take place mainly virtually via Microsoft Teams. Despite the new conditions, we are convinced that we can also get to know our talents virtually. You will receive more information about the interview process from our HR management team with your invitation.

To ensure that your virtual interview goes as smoothly as possible, we would like to give you some important tips:

  • Make sure you have a stable Internet connection.
  • Familiarize yourself sufficiently with the technology (camera, microphone) and the messaging tool (e.g. Microsoft Teams) before the interview.
  • Approximately 15 minutes before the start of the interview, check that you have access to the meeting using the dial-in data provided in the invitation.
  • Choose a place where you feel comfortable, relaxed and can speak undisturbed.
  • Even in a virtual interview, we emphasize appropriate attire.

Of course you can! You can always send us an unsolicited application via our career portal. That's why we have a separate job advertisement on our job board. We also welcome career changers on a full-time or part-time basis.

The reasons for a rejection can be very diverse. Maybe you are just the right person for the new position.

Of course, you can. If you are interested in more than one position, you are welcome to apply more than once. To do so, you will need to upload your documents again for each posting.

We have made it our goal to carefully review each application. This can sometimes take some time, so we ask for your patience and understanding. As soon as we have gained an impression of your application, we will contact you immediately. You are welcome to inquire about the current status of your application at any time with the contact person named in the advertisement.

In order for us to get the best possible impression of your application, we need the following documents:

  • Cover letter or letter of motivation (optional)
  • Curriculum vitae with complete contact details (optionally with photo)
  • Relevant work and / or school references

Once we have received your application, it will be released for review by the relevant department. After a thorough review of your documents, we will contact you with initial feedback, e.g. a request for an interview date.

Our trainees and dual students are selected in a two-stage process. After an initial meeting to get to know each other, there is usually a second interview or trainee selection day. On this day, you will be given a comprehensive insight into the company and the respective apprenticeships. In addition, you have the opportunity to demonstrate your previous experience and knowledge in the respective occupation.

Due to the corona pandemic, the selection day is currently taking place online as part of a second interview. Further information will be provided to you in advance by the respective trainer and personnel manager.

If you want to apply for a mandatory internship at GK, we need the relevant excerpt from your study or training regulations. For all student internships as well as working student activities and final theses, a currently valid certificate of enrollment is required. In addition to the usual application documents (cover letter and curriculum vitae), we are always pleased to receive a current transcript of grades or the most recent school reports.

Our HR Management Team will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your application at any time! Please use our central e-mail address careers@gk-software.com or contact us by phone at +49 37464840.

The protection of your personal data is particularly important to us. By using our career portal, you provide GK with your personal data and all information relevant to the application. We process and use your data exclusively for the purposes necessary to ensure that the application process is handled correctly. We will not pass on any data to third parties without your express consent. Further information on data protection can be found here.

It is very important to us to create an environment at GK where you are offered more than just a job.

Therefore, we invite you to get to know our Active Balance Program. The goal of this program is to offer our employees a variety of opportunities to balance their work and to provide them with practical everyday support. Our Active Balance program ranges from various opportunities to play sports as a team to different services offered at the various locations. For more information, please visit Culture & Benefits.

You want to be considered for future vacancies after completing the application process? No problem! We will be happy to stay in touch with you and add you to our talent pool based on your qualifications.

Of course, you can object to being included in the talent pool at any time. Please contact us at careers@gk-software.com and let us know.

We look forward to hearing from you!
