ZNAPP tips
Openness and flexibility can open many doors on your career path. Take advantage of the opportunities available to you to find your dream job. Look at many offers, get to know different companies and make a conscious and well-informed decision.

You are looking for your dream job and have a great contact request on znapp.de from a dream employer? Congratulations! We know how tempting it can be to only focus on this option and throw all other requests to the wind.

But wait a minute before you reject the others without checking! A match is not the same as an employment contract. If you already know for sure that a company is out of the question, it is of course okay to reject the request immediately. But otherwise it is always a good idea to look at more than one offer. You don't want to end up empty-handed. And maybe you'll find a great job among the other requests that you hadn't dared to dream of.   

Even if you are about to sign a contract with a company, you should check who is contacting you. Because until both parties have signed the contract, the game is not over! Stay open minded – this will bring you some advantages:

Flexibilityät and freedom: By accepting multiple contact requests, you remain flexible and have the freedom to filter out the best offer from all of them. The job search is much more relaxed if you have several irons in the fire.

Better negotiating position: With several job offers in hand, you can negotiate more confidently for salary and other benefits. Because if you know what you can earn elsewhere, you don't have to settle for the first salary offer from your employer of choice.

Clever reality check: Sometimes it is only in a personal conversation that it becomes clear that the idea of a company does not match the reality. If you have accepted several applications, all you need to do is get to know them all. And then you can take your time to decide which job suits you best and comes closest to your dream job.

Learning by doing: Several job interviews give you the chance to improve your application process. Perhaps you first arrange an interview with a company that is not your number 1. You can learn from this and prepare yourself even better for future interviews. And who knowsß – maybe you'll discover your new favorite employer along the way.

The right time: If you have decided on an offer after careful consideration and have the signed contract in your pocket, then it is the right time to turn down all other requests and job offers. And you should do this promptly, ghosting is not nice. And a clean rejection is quick and is an investment in your future. Because if the company does become interested in you again, you can easily get back in touch and don't have to apologize because you didn't let them hear from you.

Openness and flexibility can open many doors for you on your career path. Take advantage of the opportunities available to you to find your dream job. Take a look at many offers, get to know different companies and make an informed decision.

Good luck on your journey to the best possible new job!
