Application & Onboarding

A fast and above all service-oriented application process is especially important to us. That is why we do everything we can to design this first step in the process in a way that is as pleasant and efficient as possible. We never lose sight of our personal touch throughout the process. For us, onboarding is a journey together to new tasks, and onboarding should help you get on your feet at the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol. It goes without saying that we will be glad to be personally available to you at the beginning to make your transition easier.



We need a current resume with your most important experiences and achievements up to this point so that we can get to know you a bit better. You can feel free to add a cover letter if you would like to tell more about yourself. Supporting documents about professional experience and occupational training are just as helpful as references or letters of recommendation. If we need additional information from you, we will feel free to contact you personally.

After we have received your application, we examine and carefully check your documents. After that, the most suitable candidates are invited to a personal interview at the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol. If we are not able to easily decide on one candidate or the other, there will be a second interview that depending on the position may also include the team so that you can also get to know your future coworkers better. As soon as a decision has been made in your favor, we will get back to you with the appropriate contractual offer.

For professorships, what is called a test lecture takes place on a previously selected topic after the documents have been examined, and then there is a hearing with the appointment committee. The appointment committee puts the best candidates into a suggested ranking and invites them to a second interview at the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol. At the second interview, you also get to know your future team coworkers. If you are chosen, we will be glad to submit a contractual offer to you.

During the entire application process, we are glad to keep you updated on your current status in the process.

Our goal is to make a decision as quickly as possible and to keep the application process as short as possible – for the benefit of the applicants as well. Needless to say, sometimes we may need more time to look at the documents than planned because of the position or because of the high number of applications. However, we would like to take time for the procedure and ask for your understanding if the personnel selection process takes a longer time than expected. We will definitely inform you if there are delays in the process.

For us, it is especially important that your application documents are complete and that all relevant documents are sent. Personal contact is very important to us, which is why we are very glad if you contact us in advance to inquire about the desired position. Ideally, you will have familiarized yourself with the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol and informed yourself about us as well as possible before your interview. It is definitely worth taking a look at our home page. During interviews, respectful interaction, a pleasant atmosphere, and open communication are very important to us.

On your first day at the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol, we take care of the hiring formalities with you and provide you with a comprehensive information packet. Before you go to your new workplace, you take an introductory tour of our facility, and we familiarize you with our employees.

Then you normally meet with your manager and are handed over to your team. We are glad to have lunch together on your first day to make it easier for us to get to know each other.

During your initial weeks, you receive comprehensive training in your area of responsibility, and your team gives you professional support. You get an insight into other specialty areas, departments, and degree programs by what is called the division rotation. The division rotation takes place at regular intervals and gives you an overall understanding of the wide range of tasks at the entire university.
