Frequently asked questions about the application process
Of course! You can apply for several jobs at the same time. You only need to upload your CV once and it will be saved for all positions. You can upload the cover letter for each position individually if you wish.
We do not currently offer pupil internships.
Good supervision of interns is important to us, which is why we offer positions once a supervised department has been found. Alternatively, in addition to internships, we also offer many positions for working students. You can also find the current internship positions on our careers page at www.jobs.biontech.com. Please refrain from unsolicited applications.
The most important thing with regard to the upcoming interview is good preparation. Therefore, take enough time to prepare for the interview. Careful reading of the job advertisement is essential. Find out from the job advertisement what experience and skills are required of the future job holder and transfer these requirements to yourself. Were there any specific situations in which you were able to demonstrate these skills? Usually the interviewer will ask you questions to find out if your skills and experience match the job profile they are looking for. The more precise, detailed and concrete you can describe the situations in which you were able to use a certain skill, what role you explicitly had, what was the result and your findings afterwards, the better.
Also think in detail beforehand about what are your arguments that make you the right person for the job.
Be prepared to go through your CV with your interviewers and focus on the key points in your CV that are relevant to the position for which you are being interviewed.
It is also very important to get a comprehensive overview of the company. Our website, LinkedIn channel, and other sources can help you gather and research all of this information. Here are some questions to help you do that: Do you have a good picture of BioNTech? Do you know exactly what we do and what makes us tick? What are our values, culture and vision?
Please submit your application for the respective position via your applicant profile in our application system at jobs.biontech.com.

We will also be happy to answer general questions about the application process on 06131 9084 1291 (12-4 pm) or at any time at email@example.com.
The simplest way is to just submit the documents in the language that the job is posted in.
So that we can process your application quickly and securely, we only accept applications via our applicant portal, not by e-mail or mail.
Generally the CV is fine. If a motiviation letter is required, this will be stated in the job ad.
Protecting your personal data is very important to us. During the application process, you will be asked who you want to share your data with. We recommend that you check the box "All recruiters of the company worldwide". Your application will then be visible to all BioNTech recruiters globally and you can be considered for other open positions that match your skills & interests.
If you do not want to be visible to all recruiters within BioNTech worldwide, but only in your country/region, select the option ''All recruiters of the company in my country/region''.
If you only want to be contacted for the job you applied for, please select the option ''Only recruiters who handle jobs I am applying for''. Your application will only be visible to recruiters for those jobs.
What does that mean?
It means that we are always on the lookout – for new challenges and for people who want to tackle them with us.
