Managing directors or persons involved in the selection and hiring process are not eligible for this programme. Working students and interns may not participate in the programme due to the short-term nature of their employment. Mini-jobbers and midi-jobbers are also excluded due to contractual salary limits.

To do so, the applicant must fill out and submit the form entitled. This form must be signed by the employee who made the referral and submitted with the other application documents.
