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 16.11, 1st floor, Meeting room 2. The presentation will be in German.
