1. Better the Uschi from Herne than the Ulrike from Harvard
Many new jobs are created in the middle class crisis-proof Company, But there, the international CVs of modern young academics are often less viewed. Top applicants will not stay long anyway, many people seem to think (and may even be right).
Therefore, very well qualified applicants are currently receiving more cancellations than medium good ones. With the surprising effect that the rate of invitations to applications of average qualified applicants is currently much better than that of high-flyers, says Svenja Hofert. The Trend: Most companies do not need the best of the best, but ordinary employees.
2. Degree courses are behind
In marketing one sees it most clearly: What students learn at the university, is hardly needed in the current working life.
There are few jobs for product managers, but many for online people of all kinds. But only practitioners can do it properly online. The trend: the demand in the job market is changing fast - applicants should not rest at all learned.
3. Storming the winning industries
The automotive industry is slowly but surely losing its appeal. The winners are sectors that have so far had little suitability, medical technology, for example, barely affected by the crisis.
The alternative energies and industries that are largely independent of the global economy such as health, food or services promise a rapid upturn. The Trend: Yesterday's boom industries are the losers of today.
4. Newcomer instead of stars
Smart career makers are interested in companies known only to insiders. For example, OHB-System AG from Bremen - a company that hardly knew one before - came off the scene of the latest call for tenders for the European satellite program.
The trend: Choosing the right employer to plan like a smart move.
5. Colorful instead of red thread
Not every new job makes it possible to keep the famous thread in the CV. Often, more changes are needed, such as a change of industry.
This becomes quite normal - and the common thread is less a sequence of similar activities than logical steps. The trend: It's better to leave open the way the CV is developing - hardly anything can be planned anyway.
6. Mix and Kombijobs
The Institute for Labor Market Research knows that the number of part-time jobs has been growing since 2009. Especially in the civil service, in small businesses, in culture or clubs / associations, there are often only jobs for 20 hours.
These can usually be ideally combined with freelance work - for which there is also a growing market. According to the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs, 2009 has already grown its number of part-time start-ups by 4,7 percent. The trend: Two or more jobs are often not only necessary, but often a good solution.
7. Do your own thing
In times of crisis, the number of start-ups always increases significantly. But surprisingly many new companies survive - partly because there is an increasing demand for specific topics. Whether moving service for dogs or coaching for plain text - much is possible.
According to the Federal Employment Agency, 16 has already seen 2009 increase its number of start-up subsidized companies by 2008 percent - this year the increase is probably even stronger. The trend: self-employment is after the absolute lull XNUMX two years later again a hot topic.
