It is always a thrill to be in the ErasmusDays organizing team of CESIE. This year choosing the topic of our livestreaming events was not easy and procedures had to be revised and formalised but I enjoyed every second.

This year we will be talking about Climate change and community resilience, STEM, ICT in schoold education, Lifelong learning and Approaches to diversity in educational contexts. My collegues are working hard to deliver the best Social Cafés!

Managed an Intern
A few years ago I had the worst possible intern ever. I had just joined an organisation and was excited to work together with her. I was determined to make her time in the organisation and in the country a success. For her it was, for me it was hell on heart. 

When she left I thought "What if I am asked for a reference? Would I be ok in telling people how bad she was? Would I ruin her future chances?"

The best choice is to warn people in advance so that they won't mention you with potential employers - which I didn't, she left in hurry and refused an exit interview; but there is always the chance you are reached by recruiters or potential employers. And that's what made me question my intentions.

Some managers just refuse to comment, to avoid any possibility of lawsuit, but they are not making a courtesy to their peers. And it would sound suspicious anyway. You may be willing to not jeopardize people's chances for a new job, but providing a false positive reference will surely jeopardize your reputation.

Giving bad references does not equal defaming. As long as what you are saying is factually accurate, you will be fine.

Erster Kontakt mit SEO

Übernahme einer neuen Aufgabe. Eine der ersten Tätigkeiten ist die Homepage in Google auf die vorderen Plätze zu bringen. Innerhalb von acht Wochen ist das Ziel erreicht. Über zehn Jahre findet man die Website weltweit unter den Top 5 der gewünschten Keywords. Dazu tragen neben einer guten Domain vor allem eine ständig weiterentwickelte SEO-Strategie und abgestimmte Texte bei.
