Your own path is becoming ever more important
Potential development is an increasingly important issue in our society: While formerly vocational and professional paths were quasi-standardized and presented, it will become increasingly important in our digitized and networked society that people go their own, creative and unusual ways, such as management foreman Gunther Dueck.
Also in Company is increasingly an issue: Because more and more often I hear from recruiters and personnel marketers that creative and innovative problem solvers who can, for example, as far as possible automatically work into technical solutions and even entrepreneurs are desperately looking for.
Have courage to go your own way!
This is the reason why I find it particularly important that young people who are just starting out into a career or want to re-orient themselves professionally are not only given tips for the design of CVs and application letters, but that we help adults to discover their own abilities.
This includes the courage to embark on extraordinary career and life paths as well as perseverance to pursue their own ideas and goals despite adversities.
Down from the dead horse!
Perhaps that is why we will light up Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® For years, new ways of working and interviewing people around the world to innovative business and marketing ideas and new and traditional job profiles, through which we document the social change in all its facets. The corresponding texts can be found in our section professions.
Here are some more examples: "Down from the dead horse" recommends about Tom Diesbrock in his Series of contributions to a new career, With which difficulties one must deal with the vocational orientation, I show in the contribution "Which profession suits me?"Many of our readers have written down their stories over the years as founders' reports or in guest posts about their lives.
Potentialenfaltung - but not for all
Now it is just not so easy, that you simply have to give a few tips and then put them full of energy. Unfortunately, the opposite is often the case, because they often do not dare to take their fate into their own hands because of their training or their environment.
For example, this week I was excitedly talking to a university professor and professor about how much harder it is for working-class children - because we both share this experience.
Why are many people frustrated rather than motivated?
For example, if role models are lacking in one's social environment, one's own parents do not encourage education because of lack of experience and one hears from others that one should accept one's fate instead of being able to improve something on one's own initiative, then this paralyzes the sense of self-efficacy and self-efficacy hence the motivation to fight for his goals.
The result is that many people are anything but prepared and frustrated at the digital, social change. I remember, for example, the fierce, up Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® Years of discussion on the subject Skills shortage, in which many engineers bitterly complained that they could not find a job.
Why are some people just not successful?
Careerexpert Svenja Hofert at the time thankfully highlighted the application documents with an economic engineer with an immigration background, as they say in several contributions worked out that much of the presentation of this application documents depended - an exciting experiment, I think.
In the end, the applicant has also found a job - thanks to extensive advice and many good tips. But, and unfortunately that's the dilemma: many can not or do not want to afford such advice because they do not see the benefits.
When people get together, you can achieve a lot
After all, the discussions also ended Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® in an active action: Numerous engineers have come under "We are VDI"- in contrast to the business-friendly Association of German Engineers founded - to illuminate the issue of skills shortage critical. In the end, the topic was also from an ARD reportage taken up.
It is therefore true, what Matthias Horx said: people can achieve a lot if they get together. Since the topic is so important, the end is open, we should all contribute to the topic. It is important to initiate a discussion on this important topic. Let's start with it today!
