You’d like to apply for job on our global Job Board? Or submit an unsolicited application? We look forward to receiving it! From submitting your online application to being accepted for a job, there are a number of steps to be completed which we would like to illustrate here.
Chronological order of the steps of your application
You haven't yet been able to find a suitable position on our Job Board? - Then do not hesitate to let us know the fields of activity you’d like to work in because we’re always interested in talented employees.
Just create a general candidate profile on our Applicant Management Platform. Our recruiters use this platform to actively search for suitable candidates for open positions and contact you afterwards.
How can I apply for a position at OSRAM? Where can I create a user profile? - Here you can find answers to the most important questions concerning job applications, final theses, internships, and graduation with a PhD at OSRAM.
Please use the search functions or categories to find answers to your questions.
Just submit your application via our Applicant Management Platform. First set up a user account, read and accept our data protection regulations and then register as a new user.
You can apply for permanent positions as well as for student traineeships, final theses and apprenticeship training positions. It certainly makes sense to upload further relevant documents – such as a CV in tabular form, diploma certificates, and certificates confirming any additional qualifications (stays abroad, references, etc.). So feel free to attach these to your profile.
You only enter your profile data in your user account once. We distinguish between your profile data and your application for a specific position. If we have a vacant position, we always browse through all the profile data stored in our database to find suitable candidates. This means for you that you don’t need to submit an unsolicited application. Just set up a profile and we’ll check whether it matches an open position.
Should you have any special question which can make a difference to your application, please do not hesitate to give us a phone call. We’ll discuss any further questions in detail with you during the job interview. Our decision cannot be influenced by phone calls. We also ask for your kind understanding if you cannot reach the recruiter in charge of the position right away – his regular job is to conduct interviews. You can usually find the recruiter’s phone number in the job post.
Yes, of course. Just create a general candidate profile on our Applicant Management Platform. Our recruiters use this platform to actively search for suitable candidates for new or vacant positions and contact them afterwards.
Unfortunately it is not possible to contact the specialist area in advance. Please understand that we need your application first. If your profile sounds interesting to us, we’ll contact you to discuss further steps, conduct a telephone interview, and possibly arrange a face-to-face interview to get to know you in person. However, feel free to contact our Ambassadors from the specialist areas at any time. The list of contact partners is available here.
After your most recent login, the data will remain stored for six months in accordance with data protection regulations. This period will start again once you log on again and check your profile. Before the end of this six-month period you'll be notified in advance by e-mail that your profile will be deleted if you do not log on again.

You’ve found your dream job on our Job Board, but are not quite sure how to write your cover letter? The cover letter is an opportunity for you to show your enthusiasm for the position and demonstrate to us why you’re the ideal candidate. Make sure that your cover letter fits on a Din A 4 page and that you write in the language used in the job post.
The following questions can serve as a guideline:
- What competences, skills and experience do you have which will prove useful in the position to be filled?
- What motivates you to apply to OSRAM, and why for this position?
- What makes you special?
More tips for your cover letter:
- Explore one or two skills or experiences from your CV more closely
- Align your cover letter with the position for which you are applying
- You will find the name of the recruiter in the advertisement - so better check twice if you have spelled the name correctly
We recommend that you adapt your CV to the individual job post. For what reason? This is a good way to draw our attention to stages in your education/career and skills that make you the ideal candidate for the position to be filled.
Emphasize your most important tasks and successes for each stage, because the following rule applies: Focus on the essentials rather than excessively long lists. Put yourself in the place of the recruiting team and use customary designations.
Important tips for your CV:
- Use a clear format and font that is easy to read, such as Arial or Times New Roman
- Create your resume in tabular form and start with your last activity
- Limit yourself to a few meaningful sub-items per station
- Avoid gaps in your resume
- Limit yourself to relevant information
- Your resume should ideally include 1 page, maximum 2 pages
- Check your resume for formulation and spelling mistakes
- Ensure a clear structure and good legibility
- Send your resume best as a PDF file
Social networks have become an integral part of our lives and also play a major role in our careers. Here we would like to give you a few tips on how you can use the platforms specifically for your self-marketing.
- Focus instead of mass
Self-marketing doesn't mean you have to play everywhere from now on. In addition to the well-known professional networks like LinkedIn, there are also many platforms for specific target groups such as Research Gate. We strongly recommend that you focus rather than focus on the masses. Think about which channels are most relevant for your field and of course, which channels you like the most.
- Networking made easy
The more you network with other users, the higher the visibility of your contributions and ultimately your profile. Make contacts again and again - both private and professional - and build your network. With Xing, for example, there is the possibility that you can display the users near you in the app - we find this very useful if you are, for example, at a conference or event.
- Always up to date
Keep your profile information and entries up to date. In the professional networks you can also specify whether you are currently searching actively or are open for offers and what expectations you have. This information can only be seen by recruiters, so you don't have to worry that your boss will notice your job search. We also recommend that you post regularly, link to and comment on other posts, and show yourself. This will make you visible to your network.
You were invited to an interview? Great, because your documents have aroused our interest and we would like to get to know you personally and learn more about you.
Here are some tips for the interview:
The interview is your chance to find out if the job is what you're looking for. You should therefore know your expectations in terms of the job and your professional development. Therefore, prepare appropriate questions for your interview partners to check wheather this job is right for you. Good preparation gives you security: prepare yourself for questions about your career and your qualifications and motivation with regard to the job. We also recommend that you read the latest OSRAM press so that you are up to date and aware of the latest developments. Imagine you are optimally prepared and on your way to the interview but the subway is late? This can easily stress you, so we strongly advise you to allow plenty of time. With the invitation to the interview you will receive information on how to get there and our parking facilities. Make sure that you speak clearly in the interview and look for eye contact with your interviewees. Don't worry if you're a little nervous: our recruiters are professionals and will respond to you.
