Job profile! in change: from historian to IT expert

occupations pictures

I come from a family who is into technology and craft were capitalized. After graduating from high school, I decided to turn my back on this centuries-old tradition and studied history, philosophy and Politics.

Analytical Obsessions

Afterwards, however, it turned out that this was only a seeming break, because I only landed some time after the studies in the database programming (to the great joy of my father, who had already given up all hope).

Amazingly enough, thanks to analytical obsessions that I have used to understand my interpersonal relationships to date, I have been able to achieve this very well.

Contact with IT never completely lost

Of course, that also had to do with the fact that I had never completely lost contact with IT: My father started working as a programmer (at the time at “Zuse”) at Thyssen in Duisburg in the mid-sixties. Since he saw IT as a future-oriented technology that will continue to provide jobs for the next few decades, he steered me in this direction early on.

1982 / 1983 I learned my first programming language with Basic on a Commodore at school, but I decided to study for a spiritual science after the Abitur and the subsequent military service. The IT, however, I stayed in my free time and various computer generations (Atari, 386, 486) switched to my desk. Of course, I had an Internet connection very early and I was interested in the emerging web technologies.

First a freelance journalist

After my studies in human sciences, I worked in various fields as a freelance journalist. The highlight was my time as an editor for local-specific themes at the then channel 10.

At the time, I made a series of essays on history and archeology on the Rhine and Moselle with a well-known archaeologist. In total, we produced nine contributions that enjoyed a great response from the audience.

Entry into the IT

Unfortunately, the financial aspect wasn't enough, so I decided to use the IT potential I had acquired in my free time and use it professionally in this part of my life.

I was also able to enter the company in the second half of the year 1998 at a newly founded software company, which carried out a major insurance project.

"Get to grips with IT and business!"

I can only advise every humanities student to seize every opportunity to engage with other areas (IT, business, ect.). The professional environment for humanities scholars was not exactly rosy at the end of my studies, but times seem to have become even harder since then.

So: do not lose heart, trust yourself, be persistent and be prepared for the fact that it sometimes takes a few years for success to set in!

    Hello Chrischii,
    well, so against the taxpayer Germanist I have just refused here:.
    Like woman Professor Meyer-Althoff said so beautifully, they are also strong in the picture Professorto blame for no other alternatives or who do not think outside the box themselves.
    But my small collection should also show that humanities scholars can do more than they think - if they show some initiative.
    But if you like: I look forward to more testimonials for my collection!

  2. Chrischii says:

    This is true with the humanists. It is not for nothing that there is the permanent image of the Germanist who is a taxi driver after graduation. Unfortunately, the prospects are not so rosy, a large part of the way to self-employment, usually as a freelancer or sole proprietorship. Dependent occupations are rather rare. Therefore, I can only encourage everyone to acquire more knowledge, especially in the technical field !!
