Information Systems graduates from Bamberg are very popular amongst employers

Monday, December 4. 2006

A recent article of the newspaper "Die Welt" cites a survey from early 2005, where human ressources managers where asked for there favorite Information Systems graduates - graduates from Bamberg made it to rank three here. Quite impressive! The newspaper made an interview with Prof. Ferstl about the subject, read it here.
Information systems graduates are quite popular, anyway. I've talked to a friend who works with Delloite Switzerland and she told me about here recent visit of a graduates convention in Cologne, to which she was sent in order to get some graduates for Switzerland. So if your almost done with your studies and need a contact to Deloitte Switzerland - just ask me.

A rough start into the week

Wednesday, January 18. 2006

Monday and Tuesday were definitely two of those days, which I can look back to and tap my own shoulders, that I made it through them. The main plot for them has been laid out on Sunday afternoon. I had decided not to do some sightseeing in Zürich with our party crowd, and stayed at “home” to go through the exercise sheets I have to asses for my Anwendungspakete-tutorial. This decision was strategically important, to give me a little buffer for Monday (and it probably saved me some 80 Franken, which five of my friends hat to pay for fare-dodging in Zürich). After dropping Tanja in Stuttgart, and having trouble with the Navigation-System in Christian’s car, we arrived Bamberg as late as quarter to midnight, I just fell into my bed and slept until late Monday morning. Luckily I managed to finish the assessment of the exercise sheets before noon. But the preparation for my GBIS-Tutorial could have been better… However, Jochen and I did a decent job, and the raised problem will be easily solved next Monday. After the tutorial I had a meeting with Susann scheduled, where she wanted to help me on my SPSS problems for my U3 seminar. Unluckily, she was busy at that time, luckily she referred me to Nadja who is even more into SPSS. That meeting solved a few issues, but also opened a lot of new question. Afterwards I had to hurry for my Anwendungspakete-tutorial. Although the new exercise sheet was out, most of the people were only interested to hear their assessment, and left immediately after getting their results. The remaining evening was stuffed with to dos, too. Visiting the futuredays lecture about nano technologies, meet my new flatmate Juliane, prepare my talk for the U3 Seminar, visit Tim’s birthday party. Somehow I managed to deal with everything and the beer at the Luitpold café, were Tim was celebrating was well earned. Anna later convinced me to join the party crowd, which was moving to the Live Club. Regarding my talk on Tuesday morning this was not a very good idea – but in the retrospective I would not have had the chance to meet this girl… Anyway. No tequila next Monday! And no reason to meet cold ducks again this year.
Tuesday morning I got up at nine, and got ready for my seminar. I was there on time, and the atmosphere was good. I managed to become last presenting, and did quite well. The devastating critic I expected did not take place. Following up dinner was another seminar, which went quite well, too. At this point I was quite exhausted, but I had scheduled a appointment with Georg to exchange last weekends pictures, so I could not drive home yet.
At around 5pm I finally started for Truppach, where I was going with my brother’s car in order to collect my desk. In the morning driving through dense snow with a bycicle was not too much fun. Now driving home over a closed blanket of snow with a rear-wheel drive was no fun, too. But after one hour of driving I reached my parents home. After a good dinner I couldn’t do much more than a little chit-chat, email correspondence and went to bed early.

A spontaneous trip into the south

Friday, January 13. 2006

When I initially got the invitation for Bianca’s birthday party it was obvious, that my current workload won’t allow me to visit her in Zürich. But then she called me tonight.. and she was just too convincing. I was still sitting inside RZ0.07 (my favorite hangout since I don’t have internet access at home yet) and Bianca told me, that Christian would leave for Zürich in 45 minutes. Since I was at the university by bus, this was quite a challenge. But my brother helped my out quite well (I had to borrow his sleeping bag and we had already planned, that he would deliver my old desk chair to me this evening anyway). So he collected me at the computing center and dropped me at my place. With some ten minutes to go until Christian would collect me, I ran into my flat-mate Christian who was about to transport a wardrobe to our third floor apartment. So I was at the right time at the right place to help him. When we were finished Christian already called that he’d be on his way – brilliant timing. We then collected Pia and are right now on our way to Zürich.
