With your application, you lay the foundation for your personal future. Based on your application, we would like to get to know you and get a first impression of you.

Tips for the application

Complete documents are very important for the application process. In the meantime, you can convey an expressive overall image of yourself and win us over at first glance. Therefore, make sure that all the necessary documents are attached to your application.

You need:

A meaningful cover letter in which you explain your motivation and qualifications for the advertised position.

A resume showing your previous school, vocational or university qualifications, professional experience and previous fields of activity.

Credentials and certificates, diplomas, employment references, and if applicable, certificates and other proof of qualifications and achievements.

The application procedure at Hogrefe


After your application has been received, you will promptly receive a confirmation of receipt by e-mail. Afterwards, your application will be reviewed by the HR department and the respective division. As we process each application individually, you will need to be patient until you receive further feedback from us.


If you have piqued our interest, we will invite you to an interview. As the largest German-language test publisher, we test our candidates beforehand using test procedures from our company. The first interview, in particular, is often conducted at present digitally via Microsoft Teams. We will provide you with all the technical details in good time before the interview.

One thing is certain: Even if we only meet digitally at first, we always want to get to know you and talk to you about your opportunities at Hogrefe. We look forward to it!


If you were able to win us over in the interview, a second interview or a meeting with the team may follow. Whether this takes place digitally or on site with us in Göttingen is something that we will discuss individually.


If we are convinced by your performance during the interviews, we will offer you the chance to work with us. If you would also like to become part of our Hogrefe team, we will clarify the contract-relevant data and conclude an employment contract.

And then the only thing left to say is: Welcome to Hogrefe Verlag!
