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    . . . > > >

IPSER - We are here for you!

The current Corona crisis is not lost on any of us. For IPSER, the health of our employees and customers is our top priority. That is why we have completely stopped public traffic for some time now and all colleagues are working in their home offices. We hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and that it stays that way! Our private employment service continues, of course. Even more, we have intensified our placement efforts so that life after the crisis can continue as pleasantly as possible for our clients who are looking for a new job or project.    . . . > > >

I want my dream job!

Do you also want a dream job? Should it be a job where you hardly have to work, earn more than you can spend and also have fun? Is that what you are looking for? If so - we have to disappoint you! Job offers promising that you will earn 10,000 euros and more with only 20 hours of work a week are only one thing: dubious and unrealistic! "The dream job" - what does that mean for yourself? We asked some of our clients. And - you may already be able to imagine it - no one answered: "By doing nothing much    . . . > > >

m/f/d - Meaning job vacancies. What does d/x/i mean?

In job offers you often find the abbreviations d or i or x - what do they mean?
Many companies do not only formulate their vacancies as m/f (male/female), but add a d, an x or even an i. These designations can be found in newspapers as well as on online portals. What exactly is behind this? In October 2017, the Federal Constitutional Court made a decision on the third gender. From this point on, people who feel they belong to neither the male nor the female gender are able to have themselves entered accordingly in the birth register. Through this third gender entry in the civil status law, the   . . . > > >

Creativity in job advertising and job search

Not only jobseekers are breaking new ground, but also companies. Your speculative application is increasingly becoming marketing on your own behalf.
It has "always" been like this: employers look for workers/trainees and job seekers/young people apply. However, many companies are increasingly complaining that they cannot find skilled workers or trainees. However, the search for new employees has changed a lot in recent years. It is almost a matter of course to search for jobs on job boards such as xing and many others. Some companies offer their vacancies in a new and different way. Read for yourself: The Saxon employment agency has developed an app to search for interested young people.   . . . > > >

Happy Easter wishes the Easter Fox

While many employees can look forward to four days off in a row, some creatures get into a lot of stress, at least on Sunday. First and foremost, the (Easter) bunny, who, with his helpers, surely carries millions of Easter eggs around, places them in nests and hides them in Germany alone. But why, of all things, does a rabbit bring the eggs? In some regions, the Easter fox used to be on the move, an Easter rooster groaned under the weight of its delivery and the Easter stork was also industrious. The cuckoo, which was on the move in Switzerland when it came to Easter, does much more (at least organically).   . . . > > >

Skilled workers wanted nationwide!

While the number of unemployed in Germany continues not only to stagnate, but to more or less decline, another problem is coming more and more to the fore: the shortage of labour. It has been apparent for some time that the tendency of young people and their parents is increasingly to turn to studies rather than in-company training. Especially in the skilled trades and in all social sectors, however, it is already clearly noticeable that there is a lack of suitable workers. Let us take a look at a few professions where skilled workers are in short supply.   . . . > > >

Urgently looking for employees

Not only jobseekers have their problems when looking for a job, but also companies when they are looking for employees.
If you're looking for a job, you can sometimes write books about your experiences in the process.......But if you want to hire new employees, it's not always easy either!   . . . > > >

Life satisfaction of working people

Reconciling work and family life is often difficult. Nevertheless, those who have children are happier in their jobs, as long as some conditions can be met.
Satisfaction at work and in private life are closely related. A new study shows this and much more.   . . . > > >

Applicant selection with robot recruiting

Software can support the selection among a multitude of applications - but it cannot replace the human being!
In large companies, numerous applications are received every month. It takes a lot of time and effort to sift through all these documents. Is robotic recruiting the tool of choice to make the work easier?   . . . > > >

Information on business studies - What you always wanted to know

The most popular subject at the moment is business administration. What can you achieve here, what are the salaries and what career opportunities are there?
More and more school leavers are pushing into higher education, while the number of students who want to complete in-company training is declining. Thousands of degree programmes on offer present future students with the daunting challenge of finding the right course of study for them. The Federal Statistical Office recorded around 2.7 million students in 2015. Incidentally, in 1980 there were 1,036,303 students in Germany. At the top of the list of the most popular fields of study, with over 200,000 graduates, is business studies, i.e. the   . . . > > >

Overtime and work pressure

Many employees work significantly more than their regular employment period
A random survey from the DGB's Good Work Index 2015 on the issue of excessive working hours has been published. The working hours of 4,691 dependent employees (without apprentices) from various sectors were included in the results. In addition to regular working hours, overtime and on-call times were recorded. Both part-time and full-time employees were surveyed. With your speculative application with IPSER you can find full-time and part-time jobs as well as rewarding projects for freelancers.

News from the world of work

News around the job
Here is a short summary of the news around the job of the last few days: The congress "Working in the digital world" dealt with the effects of digitalisation and ventured a look into the future. One of the most important findings was that education and training will be more important than ever in the future and that starts in primary school and in the parental home. A new study by the DIW (German Institute for Economic Research) shows that around 30 percent   . . . > > >

Unconditional basic income - income without consideration

Projects for the introduction of the unconditional basic income
Around 800 billion euros were spent in Germany in 2014 on social benefit and unemployment expenditure alone. 400 billion euros are spent on transfer payments. If one were to introduce an "unconditional basic income", the benefits from it could be financed from the reduction of the above-mentioned costs. This is initially a thesis of supporters of this basic income. What is this unconditional basic income actually? The idea   . . . > > >

What do you earn in training?

If you compare the salaries of different apprenticeship occupations, you discover huge differences. The wages drift apart by up to 700 euros.
Last year, collectively agreed training allowances rose in almost all training occupations - this is shown in a study by the BIBB (Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training). Particularly in occupations for which it is difficult to find trainees, remuneration increased more than usual. This evaluation has been conducted on 1 October of each year for almost 40 years.
