Deutsche Post DHL Group’s national campaign entitled “Become one of us” was introduced last year and is still running, but the logistics company is now bringing its recruitment methods in Germany even more up to date. Applicants no longer need to fill in online forms, which are often seen as cumbersome and time-consuming, but can now simply apply directly via WhatsApp. The applicant will receive the telephone number for his WhatsApp registration via the website

A chatbot then asks for the necessary recruitment data step by step. It is a virtual conversation in an everyday environment, which can be paused at any time and resumed later.
