Around 390 public and private universities are promoting the favor of those willing to learn, and there are always new courses of study and further education. The latter often do not even have to be accredited or nominated, which makes the overview especially difficult.

The way to the dream job

Overview

Tom Diesbrock has in his post Where is the dream job? pointed out an elementary error that many people make when choosing a career: instead of looking for an activity that really interests them, they first orient themselves to the offer.

Then medicine is studied, you know, or law. On unusual ideas comes, where one is almost reinventing his job, one hardly gets so. An approach that Diesbrock rightly referred to as a classic self-in-knee-shot technique.

Keep your eyes open when choosing your career

Overview

The old saying "keep your eyes open when choosing a career" still applies, but with the unmanageable offer it is difficult to steer the eye in the right direction. 11% of all high school graduates have no idea what they want to do, even at the graduation party.

Barbara Knickrehm, vocational counselor for high school graduates at the Employment Agency Herford, advises in a post Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® Keep your eyes open when choosing your career Professional beginners and trainees, first of all to start with yourself before you get confused by the many possibilities:

"Instead of haphazardly surfing around the Internet, you should ask yourself first and foremost what topics and tasks you are particularly interested in, especially fun to work with and have the impression that they are going well. But also the assessments of its environment should be included in the own considerations. "

What do self-assessment procedures do?

Overview

    Am 55 J, female, married, 2 adult children, 3 cats, longtime experience as a sectarian. In less than a year, I wrote 542 applications and conducted 27 application interviews. I have to apply for Hartz IV in one month. What do you advise me?

  2. Alex

    It is true that there are more and more offers to form, especially in the form of study offers. In addition, there are always new ways to develop according to the actual occupation and its training, so that you have almost endless possibilities to move from one job to another, provided that it is located in a similar area. We are currently seeing this very strongly in the areas of health and social welfare.

    The opinion of Mr. Diesbrock, how one should orientate itself on the market, I do not quite share. Especially when you have studied like me, for example, Lehramt, because you like it very much, but then after a few years of studying said that you will get no job because simply no need for learning staff is available. At this moment, one is looking for a certain degree of certainty, which is not quite an exhilarating age. I can understand this idea, especially if one chooses his profession with regard to family planning, etc, or selects certain profession.

    One should already orientate which demand exists at all.
    first at the offer.

      Hi Alex,
      it sounds reasonable what you say. And yet I have to say from my own experience that security thinking at least has never really worked with me.
      It was for me personally starting from a certain point financially more successful also heart projects to make, even if the reason against it, instead of everything stringently durchzuplanen. This is typeache, something orientate on the market does not hurt. But creativity, passion and ideas can inspire people and perhaps create a market where no one was before.
      Perhaps it must not be unconditionally the teaching profession, but coaching, perhaps there are similarly stored alternatives?

        Hello Simone,

        yes, of course this is true. I've done the same for you as you say. I studied sports and politics at Lehramt, and I have now turned to a bank education after the Bachelor's degree. However, I continue to expand my sports education in the field of rehasport and preventive sports, in order to continue to be pedagogical.

        I think this is a similar alternative, which definitely has a future and I also enjoy. To this I am still training in the banking sector, which is very interesting to me. I do not really know how to split up something, but I think if one is more like a thing in life, this is quite an alternative, to the conservative profession ...

        Best Regards

          Hi Alex,
          it is not so bad to have different stands, which may perhaps complement each other - eg by different contacts. I am only thinking of a friend who bakes biscuits for companies and professional advice - and has a total of 5 jobs:

    finally an article proclaiming out-of-the-box.
    Today I find one thing: there was still no career at the beginning of my career.

    So I advise everyone: Recognize your strengths and find the place where you are the best problem solver.

    • Simone Janson

      Thank you. If you look more closely, a lot of people do something quite different from the beginning of their activity.
