Can I send in an unsolicited application?
You can send us your application at any time via email or regular mail. Make sure, however, that you describe your desired position and your qualifications in as much detail as possible. 

What documents should I enclose with the application? 
In addition to an informative cover letter, your résumé (CV) and relevant credentials (school, training program, college/university, work references, etc.), we pay special attention to factors that apply directly to the advertised position (for example, IT and programming expertise or experience in the energy industry). 

Do I have to be able to speak Russian?
No, our official language is German. We also expect you have a solid knowledge of English.

Does GASCADE have fixed hiring dates?
No, we don't. We look forward to hearing from you at any time. 

I sent my application to GASCADE. When will I receive a response?
We will send you a confirmation that we received your application within a few days. We check all applications and try to give you a response as quickly as possible. This may take more or less time, depending on the department. Please be patient.

Should I call after I have sent my application to GASCADE? 
There is no need. We will contact your after your application has been checked by the respective unit(s) and our HR department. 

When will the positions be filled?
Unless otherwise specified in the job advertisement, our open positions can be filled immediately.

Can I apply for several positions at the same time?
Yes, you can. Multiple applications do not affect any prior applications we received from you. If you apply for several jobs, though, make sure to adapt your cover letter for each.

What does the selection process look like?
If we were impressed by your application documents, we will invite you to a job interview with representatives from the HR department and the relevant unit. This will provide us with the opportunity to tell you more about the unit and find out more about you and your skills. In most cases, we employ a two-stage selection process, which we adapt to the respective position and requirements.

Does GASCADE offer a trainee program?
We only offer direct-entry positions so that you can immerse yourself in your new job from the start. Of course, we will support you in the orientation phase and offer customized continuing education programs as your career progresses.

Can I apply to GASCADE with a bachelor's degree?
Of course. People with bachelor's degrees have the same opportunities as people with traditional diplomas or master's degrees.
