LPA strives to connect and exchange ideas with students and graduates at recruiting events held regularly at universities. Check our events calendar to see when we will be in your neighborhood.
How does the recruiting process work?
We will review your application as soon as we receive it. If we think we are a good match for each other, we will invite you – within a week and sometimes sooner – for an interview. It usually consists of an assessment and an interview with two employees who work in your field of interest. If your assessment and interviews have convinced us that you are the best candidate for us, you will receive an offer within a few days. The procedure is less elaborate for intern candidates. Normally an interview is conducted and a decision is made afterwards.
