Liebe Listenmitglieder,

Die Ausschreibung unten wurde bereits einmal über die Liste verschickt. Aufgrund von Rückfragen möchte ich gerne noch ein paar Worte hinzufügen: Sollten die Englischkenntnisse (zumindest zu Beginn) noch nicht unmittelbar zur Lehre befähigen, sollte das BewerberInnen nicht unbedingt abschrecken. Die slav. Sprachkenntnisse können auch gerne herkunfts-/muttersprachlicher Art sein. Wichtig wären dagegen die Methodenkenntnisse in Gesprächsanalyse sowie die Bereitschaft, zu einem Thema der Wirtschaftskommunikation zu arbeiten.

Für Rückfragen stehe ich gerne zur Verfügung!

Nadine Thielemann
