The application process at GoStudent


Are you wondering how the GoStudent application process works? 🤔 It's simple: As a rule, you go through 6 steps – but depending on the position, this can vary. Below is everything you need to know about the process: 

1. Are you a good fit for GoStudent?

In the first step, we take a closer look at your application documents. 👁️ We check your experience and interests to see if you are a good fit for us. 

2. A first conversation on the phone

If your documents have impressed us, we’ll call you! 📞 On the phone we get to know each other and discuss expectations. 

3. Show us what you're made of!

If everyone was happy with the call we'll send you a case study to complete. This will help us identify your skills and potential.

4. Let's get to know each other even better

Great, you've successfully completed the task! Now we want to get to know you better. 😊 What are you particularly good at, what makes your heart beat faster, and where do you want to go?

5. Let's talk business

We'll make you an offer that matches your experience and new role. 💰

6. Welcome to the team!

Congratulations! We're happy you’re joining us! Your personal work buddy will make your start easier. They will introduce you to the team and your tasks during your onboarding. 👍


Your onboarding:


Welcome to your new company! ✨ In the first week of your new job at GoStudent we give you a comprehensive onboarding so that you’ll feel comfortable in no time.

The onboarding takes place in the first working week from Monday to Friday – your Onboarding Manager is there during this time to help and advise you. First, you’ll get an overview of GoStudent and our corporate culture. You'll get to know the most important departments and their representatives to understand the processes and connections. 🙂 

You'll also participate in a Powerskill Training to learn about empathy, resilience, feedback, and conflict management.

The individual onboarding then differs depending on the department. You get to know your team members, as well as your tasks. The goal is to turn newbies into teamies as quickly as possible.

A highlight of the onboarding week: You’ll meet someone from C-level management in an engaging Q&A format! 

After the 1st or 4th week at GoStudent, the company invites you to Pizza Friday to celebrate your transition from newbie to teamie! 🍕 You will also (finally) get the famous GoStudent hoodie here.
