Who doesn't know it?  The thesis is about to be written and you are staring at the empty monitor - question marks in your eyes.

The two-part workshop begins with an introduction to the structure of a scientific thesis.

How do I start? Where does the list of abbreviations actually go and when do I need one at all? What is included in the table of contents and when do I create it? At the beginning or at the end, if the structure already exists? What are the different literature sources and how do I differentiate between them?

In the second part, in addition to research tips, various catalogues and databases are presented as well as different types of media and interlibrary loan. Practical examples are used to show and practice how to use the different media.

Prerequisites for participation in this workshop are basic knowledge of the library catalogue, lending modalities and an online user photo of the library.

Recommended for students who are about to start their final thesis.

Stress-free job search

In their search for the dream job, students cannot rely on their university degree alone, but have to go through a demanding application process at many companies. Support now comes from BARMER: Students can participate in a free assessment center training. The next training with experienced BARMER managers will take place on 22.11.2019 at 12.00 noon. "During the special selection process via an assessment center, applicants are put into extreme stress situations. With the training we want to prepare the students for this stress test", says Andre Kepper, Regional Managing Director of BARMER Emden.

Practice makes the master
In BARMER's assessment center training, participants practice typical test situations under realistic conditions. This includes role plays, group discussions on any topic and self-presentation. One focus is on dealing with stress and the pressure to make decisions. Since the number of participants is limited, there is enough time for feedback and individual tips. "Already the conception of an Assessment center triggers uncertainty and fear with many applicants. Healthier is however to be able to react surely and calmly to extreme examination situations, and this is the goal of the training , so Kepper (regional managing director of the BARMER Emden). The students benefit from seminar leaders who know what matters, as they have already organised and accompanied many assessment centres within the company - both for external and internal applicants. The offer applies to all students, regardless of their affiliation to the respective health insurance fund.

Recommended for students of all courses. Healthy snacks and drinks will be provided during the training!

The workshop will take place at "The Hub" of Zukunft Emden. Address: Zukunft Emden GmbH, Heinrich-Nordhoff-Straße 2, 26723 Emden, Germany
