11.10.2017 Staff selection made easy for junior scientists

The decisive factor for the success of personnel selection is that the profile criteria of the position to be filled correspond to the competences of the new employees to be recruited. This is not just about professional qualifications but also about strong social and personal skills. Fabian Rodies, area head of HR Development at HHU, provides important tips for all junior scientists who have to choose their own staff and have to carry out application processes. He introduces the information materials of the personnel department, will answer questions on staff selection and provides formal (legal) information on the selection process.

This HeRA Lunch takes place in building 21.02 (SSC) room 21. The presentation language will be German.
