    In an advertisement for a job it is often stated which individual documents you should submit with your application. Normally an application consists of the following parts: – Cover letter: In the cover letter, you briefly tell us who you are and how you got your job. You should also mention why you want to work for the company. Some companies also want a letter of motivation from you. In a letter of motivation you emphasize why you are the right person for this job and what motivation you have to work in this company. – Curriculum vitae: In your curriculum vitae you list data on your professional career in tabular form. Common components are: personal data, school career, professional career and further qualifications. Further qualifications include for example language skills, driver’s license, volunteer work and knowlegde of software or hardware. – Qualification certificates: With the qualification certificates you attach everything that could be interesting for the profession you are applying for. These are above all training certificates, job references, (university) school leaving certificates and certificates of participation. – Work samples: For some professions it is useful to submit samples of work. Graphic artists, for example, then send drafts that they have designed. Work samples should show the employer in advance what you can do.
