Many companies have established their own online application systems in order to assure confidentiality and to make sure that application documents reach the prospective employer directly. If you are unsure as to how to use a German online application system, going for self-initiated applications may be a valuable alternative. If you need assistance, ASP's coordinators will be happy to assist you.
