Before the recruitment process

In which file format should I send my CV?

Due to the fact that PDF is the best way to secure your personal data, send us your application in this format.

Can I send my CV in Polish?

Due to work in an international environment, it is easier for us to read applications in English or German. If your CV is sent in Polish, it may happen that we will also ask you to send a version in another language.

Will I be recruited for a specific project?

Capgemini recruits for a company, not for a specific project. Of course, we take into consideration your experience and preferences. It is our priority to make sure that you will work in the field of your interest.

My German knowledge is on level A1 / A2 - is it enough?

In most cases, we require from candidates only basic knowledge of German. If that's your level and you pass our initial language verification, at the beginning of your employment you will be offered to participate in a German language course appropriate for your level of knowledge.

I don’t speak German. Do I have any chance?

Yes, you have! In Capgemni we are carrying out more and more projects in English. There is no need to be afraid of lack of this skill.

Can I apply for several positions?

Yes, you can. If you are interested in several positions from our offer, select them in the appropriate order (from the most to the least interesting) in the application form.

Will I receive information from the recruiter if my application is rejected?

Giving feedback is our priority. The result of the recruitment interview is provided by one of the interviewers. If your application is rejected at an earlier stage, the recruiter will surely inform you about it.

Can I apply if I don't see the suitable position for me?

Of course, you can! Just because we currently don’t have recruitment needs for the position you are interested in, it doesn’t mean that the situation will not change in a moment.
