Frequently asked questions

Do I need to write a cover letter?
— We definitely encourage you to do so. A cover letter allows you to elaborate on yourself, your competencies, and your motivation for the position — which will be a clear advantage and helps the recruitment team learn much more about you.

What should I include in my cover letter and CV?
— The most important thing when writing your cover letter and CV is to make sure that you reflect the job ad — in terms of experience, responsibilities, competencies, and the language in which the ad is written.

A few tips for your cover letter:

  • Summarize what makes you an ideal candidate for the job
  • Write why you’re passionate about the specific position — and Elopak
  • Give real-life examples that demonstrate why your competencies and personal traits match our needs
  • Limit your cover letter to a single page and use subheadings to break up the text

A few tips for your CV:

  • List your skills, degree, and any courses you’ve attended in reverse chronological order
  • Make sure to use informative headings so our recruiters can easily find necessary information
  • Limit your CV to three to four pages
  • Remember to thoroughly proofread both your cover letter and CV

Can I see the status of my application?
— Yes! You check the status by logging into your profile in our application system, Talent Recruiter, and clicking “Jobs applied”

Do I get feedback if I receive a rejection?
— Unfortunately not. We simply don’t have the resources to give individual feedback to all applicants. However, regardless of the outcome of the screening, applicants will always hear from us as soon as possible.

What should I prepare for the interview?
— Arriving on time and properly prepared for your interview helps ensure you present yourself in a professional way.

A few tips on what to prepare for your interview:

  • Prepare concrete examples of situations from your work life or other contexts where you’ve demonstrated the required competencies
  • Make thorough considerations about your strengths, weaknesses, and motivations as to why you want the job
  • Prepare a few relevant questions to ask the interviewer to demonstrate your curiosity and interest in the role and in Elopak

Can I send an unsolicited application?
We do not take unsolicited applications. However, you’re always more than welcome to sign up for our job alerts to get email notifications on new vacancies that match your interests
