18.04.2018 Shape your career - build a network

Establishing a functional network within the research institute, the own faculty and across faculties as well as outside university is very important for young academics and their future career. Dr. Heidrun Dorgeloh, Department of English Language and Linguistics at HHU and Dr. Christian Dumpitak, iGRAD, (both members of the HHU Senate) outline how getting involved at university can give important insights for future career steps.

This HeRA Lunch session will take place in Building 21.02 (SSC) Room 21.

A certificate of employment or a letter of recommendation are often an essential prerequisite for the next application - especially in science and when applying for scientific funding. However, setting up such a letter for an employee or a student is not an everyday business. Sabine Strerath, HHU Human resources department, points to important legal framework conditions and provides instructions on how to apply for a certificate of employment or a letter of recommendation for yourself or for your employees.

This HeRA Lunch session will take place in Building tba. The presentation will be in German.
