What matches to me?
If you want to work in a new profession, then ask yourself several questions:
- What retraining is right for me?
- What are the job prospects?
- What are the chances of finding a job afterwards?
Based on the 2016 method report “Stay after leaving professional development measures with a qualification” published by the Federal Employment Agency, kursfinder.de worked out the top ten most popular retraining occupations.
The report is based on figures from the period from July 2013 to June 2014. The first five places we look more closely.
1. Caregiver / -in
For Barbara it was clear: now that the children are out of the house, she no longer wants to be just a housewife and mother. After 20 years off, she was unable to return to her profession as a bank clerk. But where does she have chances with her 49 years? "In geriatric care," recommended a consultant from the employment agency.
Barbara is one of the 6300 individuals who completed their retraining as a geriatric nurse for the period covered. She got a job immediately after three years of training: in a nursing home. Finally, the industry prevails Skills shortage: The integration rate is 82,6 percent.
2. Office clerk / clerk and secretary
Burnout - Helen never thought that she would ever make that diagnosis. The real estate agent had everything under control. The shops were running. She liked to spend a few sightseeing appointments in the evenings or at the weekend - she allowed herself a few pleasantries from the additional commission. And did not notice how she was more and more isolated from friends and family, had no smile on her lips and sometime in the evening broke down howling in her kitchen.
A warning signal that she took seriously and went to see a doctor. Burnout. The doctor advised her to take a shorter course of action with more regular working hours and a steady income. For a while she resisted this idea, until she finally buckled - for her health. Helen is one of the over 4.600 people, who completed their retraining to the office worker / office clerk during the investigation period. 39,7 percent then found a job - including Helen, who, thanks to her organizational stature, communication strength and open-minded nature, had no problems convincing her new employer of her skills within six months.
3. Fachlagerist / -in
Jens was no longer employed as a lumberjack. This profession is dying out. But to be at home even longer than unemployed was out of the question for him: after all, he had a family to feed.
Because of his habitual physical activity and the ability to deal with means of transport, a friend advised him to have a training camp. Jens followed suit and completed this training with additional 3000 people in the period under review. The integration rate is 51,8 percent. Jens was lucky: he found a job in the central warehouse of a food trade and has now even an indefinite contract.
4. Nursery Assistant / -in
Yvonne loved her job. As a hairdresser she had to deal with people, could contribute with a new cut or some color to their well-being. But then these redness came to her hands and arms, connected with an itch. The diagnosis: allergic reaction to bleaching. Gloves did not help, the rash got worse.
To continue to deal with people, Yvonne decided to retrain the nursing care assistant and completed this together with 2000 for further re-enrollers during the investigation period. Since then, she has been working in outpatient care. She visits seniors, helps with the care of the body and takes meals, and plays with her everyday life.
5. Tax specialist Salaried / -r
Numbers have always been Antonios Ding. In his activity behind the bench switch, he went on until the day he suffered a sudden fall. Since then, he has regularly been struggling with equilibrium. He could not pursue his task standing behind the counter. Because of his passion for numbers he made a retraining to the tax expert, which he, like 1100 other persons, completed in the investigation period.
The open handling of his handicap gave him initially a few application papers. But Antonio's obstinacy paid off: after two and a half months, he was given the job title in a tax office. It therefore belongs to the 47,5 percent, which could be successfully integrated after the retraining.
- In place 6 lands in the top ten the retraining to / from the seller (1185 persons),
- followed by the specialist in computer science (1056).
- The training to become a forwarding salesman (943) secures space 8,
