Academics attract careers
A study among young women academics shows that careers are important to many women: 82 percent want to combine careers and children, 18 percent spend all their energy for the career - and no one plans to turn exclusively to the offspring. This result is hardly surprising, because who a Time and energy has invested in its training, of course, also wants to make use of it.
If no professional experience can be demonstrated after graduation, the entry is all the more difficult. The respondents are also optimistic that this choice between the two alternatives does not even have to be made: 88 percent think that children and careers can be very well connected - although the parenting could cost a lot of power next to the career.
Good reasons to stay at home
In addition, academic couples who focus on the career still have a decisive advantage: Due to the presumably high income, it is quite possible to have the child care by a third party - a nanny appears easily affordable. In practice, however, it often turns out that the agreement between work and family is not always easy. Even if this may correspond to an outdated role model, women in Germany often stay at home for some time when they have children.
This fact is also due to very practical considerations, because most men have higher incomes. If one of the two partners has to stay at home, not infrequently the financial necessity decides. In addition, you can only make a career according to popular stereotypes if you are prepared to go beyond the normal working hours of 40 weekly hours.
In addition, it is sufficiently established that the infants have a special relationship with their relative, which is, in many cases, still the mother. Finally, some experts argue that care for the child is particularly harmful in the first two years of life. There are even studies on which the social competence is to suffer when the child is separated too early from his mother. All these are arguments that convince not a few mothers to pause for a longer period of time.
Find places on the Internet
If the mother was at home for some time, the first step was not easy. In many sectors, a short exit is also required for the lack of professional practice or for certain changes and innovations. The re-entrants must be trained again over a certain period of time. In addition, there is the problem that the child may be a child's nursery or in a nursery, but in case of illness, but must be re-supplied. Minijobs or the employment in part-time appear therefore initially ideal: Minijobs especially convince by the fact that no taxes and only small social contributions have to be paid.
In addition, because you only have to work for a few hours a week, agreeing with family life is relatively easy. The search should best be done online: Portals like jobboerse-direkt.de enable a job search without much time. This is just a one-time Curriculum vitae filled. The potential employers will then come to the applicants and contact them if there is a suitable job offer. The time-consuming writing of applications can therefore be dispensed with.
With such a minijob, finally, practice can be acquired in the workplace. This refreshed the applicant's knowledge again; In addition, the first job after the babypause naturally also helps for the resume. If your own career is to be pursued, the entry is quite useful.
However, a part-time job is quickly seen as a career obstacle - so you should think early on further career steps and opportunities for further development. In addition I recommend this contribution to the topic Studying and dual studies with a child.
