Entry-level positions as an assistant or in project management, for instance, are regularly advertised. What better way for young professionals to show what they are capable of? And for those with grand ambitions of climbing the corporate ladder, it is possible to rise high: within Rhenus it is not unusual that new graduates often go on to become tomorrow's leaders. Of course, a career in management is not the only way to get ahead. Specializing as an expert will also put you well on your way to shaping things in your field.

Key facts at a glance.

So how can you apply for a direct entry? You can either respond to an advertisement for new graduates or submit a unsolicited application. Of particular interest to us are qualifications in logistics, business administration, computer science and engineering management. As far as our expectations in terms of previous experience and background knowledge go, it is virtually impossible to generalize requirements. While candidates hoping to take up a position in project management should ideally have some background in logistics, this is not absolutely necessary in other jobs. And how about if you are changing your career direction? We like to keep an eye out for interesting résumés as well as unconventional fields of experience and expertise. Above all, we are looking for dedicated, highly motivated individuals who are receptive to new things and capable of getting things done under their own steam.

Sound interesting? Then send us your application well in advance-preferably using our online application form. Please attach a letter of motivation, your résumé and your transcript of records or other academic reports in electronic form as well as any job references. Remember: your letter of motivation should indicate as specifically as possible your desired field and assignment as well as your preferred location.
