Ich drück' dir die Daumen. Habe übrigens grad bemerkt, dass du auf meiner Freundesliste stehst. Wo hast du studiert? Nur aus Neugier.

Ha, ich hab die Freundesliste nicht so im Kopf, daher hab ich das auch nicht bemerkt.
Danke nochmal! Habe studiert an der TU Kaiserslautern. Ganz nette Uni eigentlich.

Yeah the exact opposite of ours, well a 1.3 is fucking good then. I've no clue how the german economy and research has a focus on research but I hope you'll get hired as soon as possible! mathmanchris I can understand their way of thinking, though I suppose having both specialists ( so bio engineer and bio researcher) helps you to work on the project from several perspectives which is seems to be a better, but more expensive, choice
User avatar #85 - mathmanchris (12 hours ago) [-]
Totally agree with you. I took economy courses in uni so I slightly understand how managers and business people think, but it's just dumb if you campare a salary of, let's say 70,000€ a year, versus the cost if you mess up projects worth tens of millions. Maybe it's just me.
1.3 is the second best grade you can get for exams and term papers, so yeah, it's near perfect score. On that note, congratulations, datgermanguy.

Thank you, I appreciate it. I worked hard on my studies, and since i'm far from a natural talent for learning, it was pretty hard at times.
Just wishing it would finally pay up with a nice job...

Exactly, I'd rather invest in specialist to secure a good project than take the chance of fucking up because I was too cheap to hire them and took only all-rounders. €70.000,00,- is a huge salary, but only a fraction compared to millions.
User avatar #89 - datgermanguy (10 hours ago) [-]
Most of the jobs don't require specialists, since many tasks are routine that can be done by allrounders as well as "specialists", especially in entry level jobs for scientists.

Companies, however, tend to write high requirements in their job descriptions - even in entry-level jobs - in order to sort as many applicants as possible out. That way, they don't need that many interviews, and time equals money.

A logical thing to do, of course. But it takes your chance away to impress the interviewer and show why exactly you are good for the job. You are basically just a simple array of numbers which gets compared to other arrays.

1.3 In the german grading way? I'm off to bed though I'll come back to this tomorrow
User avatar #26 - mathmanchris (07/28/2015) [-]
It's pretty hard to find jobs with a pure bio degree because a lot of companies rather employ bio engineers or even chemical engineers. In most cases you need a link between research and build the damn thing, so in their logic it's easier to hire people who can "do both". Bio engineering is becoming quite a thing in Germany though and universities like Dortmund seem to concentrate a lot more on this these days (from what I hear).
User avatar #23 - datgermanguy (07/28/2015) [-]
Yes, 1,3 in the german grading way (1,0 being the best, 4,0 the worst and everything worse than that mean not passed, or 5,0)
