When an account on the Application Platform is created via the link, applicants can access their application profile at any time. Applicants can view their entered (personal) data at all times and see the (personal) data provided to BSH within the application process.
The applicant can update his/her contact data anytime, however documents and information regarding the applicants’ application profile provided cannot be updated/deleted by the applicant himself/herself (but via BSH – see below). Furthermore additional documents can be provided at any time. The applicants must be aware of the fact that changing the contact details will affect all their current applications.
When not interested in the advertised position anymore, the applicant can withdraw his/her application at any given time on the Application Platform itself. The applicant will then no longer be considered as a possible candidate for the position.
When the applicant does not wish to proceed with the unsolicited application, the applicant can withdraw his/her application at any given time on the Application Platform itself. The applicant will then no longer be considered as a possible candidate for the position indicated by the applicant.
The Company can contact the applicant with the question whether he/she is interested in becoming member of a pool of persons who have expressed their wish to work at the Company and/or the BSH Group (“Applicant Pool”). By becoming part of the Applicant Pool, the applicant can be contacted by BSH for (other) positions matching the knowledge and/or experience of the applicant. When not interested in taking part in the Applicant Pool anymore, the applicant can withdraw his/her participation at any given time on the Application Platform.
