Health insurance: As a self-employed insure legally or privately?

Image
In Germany, about 90 percent are insured with a statutory health insurance. In contrast to employees, self-employed persons are not subject to compulsory insurance and have the choice: they can freely choose between a statutory or private health insurance . Employees have this option only from a monthly income of currently 4,950 euros gross ...

Legally or privately insured
The self-employed, for example, when starting their own business or starting a business before deciding how to insure themselves, should not make the decision easy. Because this has far-reaching implications for the future : Who decides today, for example, for a private insurance, can change later only in a few cases back to the legal insurance. Even if private insurance, which is initially more favorable to young people in the first instance, seems more attractive at first glance, a legal insurance can be the more suitable alternative for many, especially in the medium and long term.

Employee search: This is how companies find new employees

Image
The employee search is becoming increasingly difficult for companies. Especially in the so-called MINT subjects and scientific-technical occupations are barely enough applicants. An innovative employee search that does not work according to Scheme F is required. On the other hand, the search methodology tells the applicant something about the company and can help him find out about his potential employer before applying ...

Jeff Bezos
Bezos studied electrical engineering and computer science at Princeton , then hired a hedge fund on New York's Wall Street.

This is how you prove your social competence

Image
Hardly any term is as charged as the social competence . Behind this are often positive key skills such as teamwork, motivation or communication skills. And not infrequently, social competence of personnel is even called as a significant recruitment criterion, synonymous with a kind of personality skills . According to a study by the Federal Institute for Vocational Training, so-called soft skills , and thus also social skills , account for around 40 percent of professional success: We do not work alone ... But what about the demanded ability and what really distinguishes it?

Definition: What is social competence anyway?
