    I would like to see an article in the paper about how to get your graduate job/ summer job with experiences and advice for fellow students. In my opinion there is an interesting distinction between job boards (Milkround, Graduate Recruitment Bureau) Vs CV databases (We Connect Students, Witlr) with time and effort needed to use successfuly and the returns of firstly applying to jobs yourself and secondly employers searching your skills.

    If you like I could submit something for your consideration. My email address is jxm958@gmail.com if you would like to contact me.

    Dear Colleague(s),

    My work as an editor and publisher of the academic journal Enzymes ISSN 1867-3317 is seriously hindered due to a professional ban, accompanied by unsubstantiated political persecution and attempts to misuse psychiatry for political aims (Ref. 1). For over two months, I have been coerced into hiding in order to avoid my unlawful imprisonment (Ref. 2). My claim for asylum, which I applied for in Austria several month ago has been refused contrary to prevailing law (Ref 3). My further attempts to escape this marginalizing terror remain without success (Ref 4). I demand the immediate end to this witch-hunt performed by German criminals. My rights, health and reputation should be reconstituted. I demand full rehabilitation as well as reasonable compensation. Moreover, the officials, who have neglected their duty, must also resign (Ref 5).

    Dr Andrej Poleev
