Engineers who do not find a job
May I introduce you to Karen? Karen studied engineering in Erlangen, is currently looking for a job - and yesterday I wrote a pretty rude comment on my blog.
In short, Karen is of the opinion that the matter of professional defenses in technical and scientific professions can only be a fairy tale; The lack could only be attended by experts who wanted to live permanently as H4-Aufstocker.
Why do high potentials migrate?
The tone, in which the commentary was made, made no desire for further dialogue at first - but when asked, the whole frustration of Karen came to light: Apparently, she has been looking for a job for some time and already has some unpleasant experiences behind her. Apparently, only 5 percent of their degree program are in permanent employment and many of them have gone abroad. Something Karen's up to. Another Hig potential less in Germany!
Later, too, has become Sandra reportedwho has a bachelor's degree in biotechnology from FH and has been looking for a job for half a year. Nobody found a job out of their year - and half of them went abroad.
Also for engineers the jobs are obviously not on the street?
Contrary to what one would expect from various press reports and studies, the jobs in these subjects do not seem to be on the road. That surprised me, because first of all I only knew such stories from humanities scholars and secondly from me some Company are known, who are reportedly desperately looking for engineers.
Discussion urgently necessary!
So where does this discrepancy come from? Are not the disciplines simply in line with labor market needs? Is it a communication problem between companies and graduates? Do the graduates expect too much from the companies? Or are not there really as many vacancies as commonly claimed?
That would really be an interesting discussion. I would be really pleased about some statements, especially of companies and personnel mediators. And maybe someone has jobs for Karen and Sandra?
