Friday Pleasures IPSER- Designing a Home Office

How excited I was when I finally found my new job. Apart from a small mishap on my first day at work, I felt comfortable in my new job. My colleagues were nice, the boss was completely okay and I really enjoyed the tasks I had. However, I had been just as unprepared - as many of us - for the fact that I would have to move my workplace home. Home office - I had already dreamt about it and thought about the pleasant aspects. Advantages of a home office I quickly had a list of the advantages of the H   . . . > > >

IPSER Wednesday Fact Sheet: Just Say Thank You

In January, Corona was still a long way off, hardly any of us thought about what could happen here too.... When the first reports came that the Covid 19 virus had also arrived here, many people underestimated it. Many thought it was a virus similar to the flu. And also "It won't affect me!". In the meantime, most of us have become aware that we have to protect not only ourselves but also other people. The current contact ban is not a punishment - it is protection! Especially for older and vulnerable people. We should    . . . > > >

Home office in the Corona crisis

Working from home - during the Corona crisis, this is a measure that many companies are not only offering their employees, but making it compulsory. The risk of infection and thus the spread of the pandemic is too great. At present, the aim is to keep the number of new infections as low as possible so that hospitals can guarantee sufficient supplies for any serious cases.

The curriculum vitae - What must go in it?

We have explained the most important pillars of the CV in the past few days. What remains are hobbies and other skills. Let's start with the things that can be supported by documents. Usually, a separate section is created for this in the CV. Conceivable titles for this are "Certifications" - Additional qualifications" - "Other skills" or "Other qualifications". Should this information really be included in the CV or would it be better to create a separate attachment for it? That depends on the individual case. Other skills in the CV We are the au   . . . > > >

Corona: Distance can become cohesion

For a given occasion, we would like to deviate a little from our previous topic today and deal with the current topic of coronavirus. Actually, everyone should know by now what it is and what should be observed or avoided at the moment. Actually..... After the closure of all leisure facilities, such as gyms, swimming pools, clubs or bars, there are many people who meet in large groups or even organise parties. Either to maintain "normal" social contacts or to distract themselves and simply have fun. In many minds   . . . > > >

Internships in the curriculum vitae

We have explained the main headings of the CV such as personal, work experience and school/training/studies in previous newsletters. But there is more to the CV than that. After all, there is a lot more in the course of a professional life that can be of interest to an employer. These include Internships in the CV An internship is designed to help you acquire new knowledge or deepen your knowledge over a certain period of time. It can last only a few weeks, but also several months. It is not an apprenticeship. We know different pr   . . . > > >

Friday Pleasures IPSER - Dress Code

It is every woman's (night)dream to spend the first day in a new job with a stained blouse. But - everything in life has its good points. So I knew right at the beginning how to roughly assess some of my colleagues. While I was waiting for my boss to pick me up from my waiting position, a few ladies crossed my path. First came colleague "Oh dear, that's not possible at all". She greeted me a little from above and her gaze remained fascinated by the coffee stain on my blouse. Her put-on smile did not reach her eyes. Skilfully she plucked   . . . > > >

Education and studies in the curriculum vitae

For applicants with professional experience, the CV for the speculative application will move on to school, training and studies after the heading "Professional" or "Professional career". We recommend that you structure your CV in chronological descending order so that the most recent is at the top. For young professionals, training and studies should be at the top. This way, the interested employer immediately sees what the applicant is currently doing. Studies in the CV The description of the studies or the period of study is more extensive than the school information. N   . . . > > >

Wednesday fact sheet IPSER - Boredom on the job

One could almost say that the so-called "boreout syndrome" is the opposite of the burnout syndrome. Boreout stands for boredom and underchallenge at work. Similar to burnout, boreout syndrome is initially a psychological problem, but it can lead to physical (health) problems. What is boreout syndrome? Boreout syndrome is mainly caused by being constantly underchallenged at work. If you constantly or never have anything to do, you start to feel bored. Of course, you don't want your colleagues or even your boss to notice that you are doing nothing.   . . . > > >

How to deal with gaps in your CV

Do you know anyone who has worked their whole life without a single day off? If so - this person is an exception. Let us consider what can cause one to have been without employment for days, weeks or months. Interruptions in working life Let's start with periods of job search. Maybe you don't find a suitable job immediately after training, you have given notice or been made redundant yourself, or a company has gone bankrupt. These are all times that are normal and explainable. We have d   . . . > > >

Professional stations in the curriculum vitae

If you have already gained professional experience, you will begin your CV with your professional experience after the subheading "Personal" and the application photo. You start this "Professional experience" with your current job. You can list each activity with job title, employer and your duties. Of course, the CV is and remains in two columns. It is not only in our current section that you enter the duration of your activity in the left column. How comprehensive you make the right-hand column is up to you. You should decide individually here. Also    . . . > > >

Friday Pleasures IPSER - The First Day

Now the time has finally come! My first working day in my new job is coming up. When I told you about it last week, I was totally euphoric. But the closer the first day gets, the more uncertain I become. What should I wear? Hopefully I won't be late for some reason. Hopefully my new colleagues will be friendly and I will enjoy my work. Optimally, I will even enjoy it. When I told my girlfriend about the collaboration with IPSER and the resulting results, she congratulated me and was proud of me for having d   . . . > > >

Wednesday IPSER fact sheet - What is burnout?

Today we are dealing with a syndrome that has become very common in working life. On the one hand, there is the so-called "burnout syndrome". Literally translated, it means "being burnt out". It is actually quite simple to understand. A syndrome is the combination of various signs of illness. Even though burnout syndrome is now widespread, it is not (yet) a recognised medical diagnosis and there is no uniform method of treatment. Both psychological and physical symptoms occur in this syndrome. This syndrome occurs most frequently in occupational groups.   . . . > > >

Layout and formatting of the CV

After our tips on the "personal" section of the CV and on the application photo, today we want to think about the formal and visual design of this document. With all the effort, always remember that in principle you only have to create a CV well and correctly once and later only make additions or changes to the contact details and, if necessary, renew the application photo. Of course, the content is paramount, but a company also needs to be visually appealing to take a second look at the document. A long time ago, it was s   . . . > > >

The application photo - what do you have to look out for?

In our last email, you learned what to look for in the "Personal" section of the CV. Today we want to take a look at the application photo, which usually finds its place in the upper right corner of the CV. Some companies prefer anonymous applications in order to be able to reflect in a completely neutral way on their interest in the applications they receive. The photo in the unsolicited application is not a must, it may not even be required by the company. Nevertheless, it is still standard and most applicants place a photo in their application.   . . . > > >

Friday Delights IPSER: Difficult Decision - Pros and Cons

Do you know this too? That you just can't make up your mind? After my frustration with my own speculative applications, I actually wanted to resign and stick with my current job. Although I didn't feel comfortable there and went to the office every morning with a stomachache. My friend had called on Tuesday and wanted to know if I had started my cooperation with IPSER. I had to confess that I had done nothing. "I'll wait until the end of the week for your feedback. Then I want to hear from you that you have finally done something!" What was left for me a   . . . > > >

Personal in the curriculum vitae

In the next few weeks, we want to go through the individual sections of the speculative application with you step by step. We will start with the CV, move on to the cover letter and then on to the cover sheet, qualifications profile and overview of certificates. Join us, find out more and feel free to ask questions about each topic. Today we'll look at the "Personal" or "Personal Data" section. This information is usually the first thing to be found high up in the CV. "Personal" - this is, for example, your contact details. You might get the idea that d   . . . > > >

Wednesday IPSER fact sheet - Double burden of job and family - what to do?

Many of us can tell you a thing or two about the double and triple burden of work and family. In the past weeks, we have mainly talked about the need for a balance to the (often) stressful working day. But now there is also another side. What if work life is a relaxation in contrast to family or private life? Yes, there is indeed such a thing. Imagine being a single parent with several children. The stress starts early in the morning. One of the children is sick, another has problems at school or is in a bad state.   . . . > > >

Do you have weaknesses? Tips for the job interview

Do you have weaknesses? At some point in the application process, everyone has to deal with the issue of strengths and weaknesses. Our strengths? It's usually easy for us to list some of them. It is different with our weaknesses. Not with our weaknesses in general, but with those that an employer may know about. Which ones do you name and how do you deal with them? Let's take a look at how different people try to overcome this hurdle. Let's start with Mr Stark. During the interview, the personnel manager wants to know: "And Mr. Stark?
