My students' enthusiasm for social media left a lot to be desired, to say the least. To Facebook you could just durchringen.Twitter found most very interesting - let's see, so the unanimous opinion. But for blogging, so the objection, just missing the time. Anyway, that's more of a journalist anyway.
What really bothered me about the socks was the unanimous opinion that we were studying economics. Because we definitely find a job and do not need such a junk! It may be that as a spiritual scientist who is aware of his whole course of studies, that it is hard afterwards, one can only dream of such self-assurance.
Arrogance from uncertainty?
Or should one rather speak of unrealistic arrogance? Not infrequently uncertainty and arrogance are closely related. And in fact, it shows that the students are well aware that their situation may not be that great either:
I once asked how they came to their previous jobs. One participant reported it first with a normal one Casting trying to have - and failed. Only in the second attempt she had come over vitamin B to their internship. Quite normal in this company, she said resignedly.
Scientists driving the taxi, BWLer become bicyclecuriers?
Humanities scholars always say that they can only become taxi drivers. Maybe they'll tell you soon, they'll become bicycle couriers? Well, it does not have to be that bad - in both cases.
But the experience of the student already coincides with what Svenja Hofert currently writes in her blog: namely, that business students are the next victims of the pig cycle. A subject that many studied, who did not want to be as stupid as scientists, and who might end up even worse off in the end. "Not a few still have no permanent job one year after graduation. Many, even women, also work as "secretary plus", ie assistant. Then again there is a lot of temporary work and occupations at the level of clerks. "
Classic business studies fall away
Hofert also mentions the reasons: There are hardly any older business economists who will be dismissed in the next few years. Employee and student numbers continue to rise - with steady to falling demand.
After all, classical business areas such as marketing and human resource management are changing radically, are becoming more and more technical, thanks to social media and the Internet: companies are therefore looking for people who have the technology and the economy as an additional qualification rather than for business management.
Students: Inflexible as before 10 years ago
However, the students are, as Hofert complains, as inflexible as before 10 years and "strive, for example, for the popular product manager positions in companies in which there are fewer and fewer - instead of building up an interesting professional profile."
Incidentally, I was also able to determine this lack of flexibility in my students: one would rather lay hands on one's lap than act on one's own. After all, no one believed in the fact that potential employers could become aware of job seekers through their own web presence on the net. Motto: "Does not bring anything, so I prefer to leave it!"
Very innovative, the students of today.
