Ending …

… the year together. How do you spend your Christmas time? Are you relaxed or stressed? Shortly before the end of the year, the Career Service team at the University of Siegen met once again for a relaxed evening with a delicious meal. With a good mood and new plans, we will continue next year. We say goodbye to a nice Christmas break and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

How late …

… is too late? Well, it’s never too late for good wishes. We at the Career Service would like to wish you the best for the new year. We have started the New Year quite quickly, with many appointments and individual trainings. So it took some time for the good intentions of consistent blog writing to find its place. But here we are with a new input on job application!

How late is too late is also always a question when applying. For example: Can I still send in my application documents after the application deadline has passed? The answer is not as simple as it might seem and often not the probable expected no. You certainly can still apply, especially for jobs advertised online. The fact that the advertisement is still available, is an indication that an application may still be possible. Our recommendation: Simply give them a call and ask. If the phone call leads to a good conversation, this can be the basis for a good application, perhaps even for a completely different position in the company, which you were not aware of. In any case: Good luck!

And because twice is better, here, form the Career Service Christmas parcel, two little pigs. They are made from marzipan, designed to bring you a happy New Year.
