I studied Romance languages ​​(with a focus on French philology), German studies (with a focus on modern German literary studies) and theater studies. Today I am Marketing Communications Manager at Jobscout24. How do you get such a course of study to such a place?

What you have to do as a spiritual scientist

When I headed for my master's exam before 3 years ago, of course, everyone predicted that I would have to expect unemployment for a certain amount of time, 6-12 months are quite normal.

And so I was genuinely surprised to be invited to an interview after just two weeks of applying. It was about a PR traineeship in Munich. The first question I had to put up with in the interview was: “I see here that you studied theater studies… (the PR director at that time raised his eyebrows and the corners of his mouth down) Is that a science at all? ”

Life as a stage

Of course I could have answered what was on my tongue: "Yes, otherwise it would not be a subject from a state-recognized university !!!" Instead, I based myself on the thesis that life is a stage, especially in professional life we ​​all played one or more roles and “performance” was a catchphrase of the free economy.

The PR director was amazed. After explaining the difference between philology and psychology, we were able to talk more relaxed. To this day I wonder whether this introductory banter was a perfidious Stresestest or whether I had to do with a narrow-minded business-fuzzi of the extra class. Anyway ... I got the job.

Marketing - more than advertising

Since then, I have made several career steps and arrived in the business world - as Marketing Communications Manager. It is interesting that my family environment - all humanities scientists - until today did not understand what I actually do.

My father likes to say: “Sonja advertises on the Internet”. Well ... I've given up trying to correct it. I am missioning today in two directions. I try to convince my parents (both linguists) that I don't have to deal with mindless shopkeepers all day at JobScout2 and I prove to my colleagues every day that even a Romanist can do something.

Give a chance to humanities scholars

One thing is for sure: Employers who give humanities a chance are certainly bolder and more open-minded than others who hire only staff with the right stall smell.

And I dare to say that there are just as many cardboard noses and bang batches among humanities scholars as among economists, mechanical engineers, physicists or IT specialists. Depending on the field of activity, other people are suitable for the job.

A Company lives from the good mix of his personnel structure

However, a company lives on the good mix of its personnel structure. Growth is created where the skills and knowledge of men and women, older and younger colleagues are combined with different training biographies - for the good of the company. If you do not understand this, you must continue to ask whether theater science is actually a science ...

In any case, I won't raise my eyebrows and corners of my mouth later to ask my children: “You want to study XY? What do you want to do with it later? And in my eyes, after all, nobody needs to be ashamed if they successfully complete their studies in Germany.
