With Simple Language to a finished application

Dear Sir or Madam,

Cover letters, curriculum vitae, certificates – the structure of an application is clear for many. But people with learning difficulties may need help in designing their application documents. And in the best case this should be done in Simple Language. This is exactly where the project "Leicht. Bewerben" comes in. How exactly do people with learning difficulties get support on the online platform? Well, we asked.

Have a successful week,

Anne Hofmann

Choosing a career is a deeply personal and intimate decision. Yet this path is also shaped by many external factors. If you are a person in a wheelchair of if you are deaf, accessing the primary labor market might not be an easy feat. But it’s definitely possible.
