Learning from the Fairy Tale

Overview

Our professional reorientation expert is Tom Diesbrock. In his contribution "Learning from the Fairy Tale"he says:" Princes in the fairy tale are more like directors who actively take their lives into their own hands. Many others are more like extras, passively waiting for something to change. "

He makes it clear what a career new start is all about: that you take your life into your own hands and actively pursue your goals instead of simply hoping for impulses from outside.

10 Reasons to ride a Dead Horse

Overview

But why do not more people do that? Diesbrock explains the reasons for this in his article series "10 Reasons to ride a dead horseOne can see how absurd and advanced some justifications are.

Social factors

Overview

But it is not only the pig's own inner guilt for the misery, but also the social environment and the mentality can successfully lead a willing professional translator successfully from his project.

A thesis by the way, Robindro Ullah in his blog post in response to my publication of a text on the topic of RP-ONLINE strongly vindicated:

Pig dog or environment?

Overview

But I totally disagree with the post. The experiences that Simone Janson describes, I have not done in our group yet ... It may be that it looks different in other companies, but actually I thought I would work in a conservative store ...

Then I ask myself smoothly: What does it look like in reality? When, for example, I apply for a degree in the humanities of the Deutsche Bahn? Because as a rule it is not really easy. However, one must also say that some people simply have little desire for something new!

Dear dissatisfied advancing than translating!

Overview

This is what the majority of Germans also look like: In a survey among employees, the consulting company Gallup 2010 found out: Good 66 percent of Germans do duty according to regulations and count the hours to holidays and holidays.

And even 23 percent has quit internally. Fully motivated, whole 11 percent are still working. But why do these workers have no consequences? Why do not you just dare to switch jobs?

Professional new start from 50

Overview

Even in the allegedly difficult age from 50, a fresh start is still possible and sometimes even easier than with 30 or 40 - because the family obligations no longer exist.

However, job seekers have to outbid with other pounds than young converts and play their professional experience on the job market. Then, according to the unanimous opinion of various experts, they have a good chance of finding a new job.

Best of HR – Berufebilder.de®-Author Katharina Daniels shows in her two-part series very beautiful, such as one Restart in the food center succeed.

There are successful cross-borderers

Overview

In fact, there are many examples of successful career changers. Former ÖTV chairman and later chancellor advisor Monika Wulf-Mathies, for example, started her career as a historian and came in as a newcomer to politics and business. From 2009, she was a manager at Deutsche Post DHL and has been advisor to the board since 2009. Through her career, she says today: "You need commitment and diligence, motivation, enjoyment of work, determination and perseverance, willingness to take risks, a healthy self-confidence, assertiveness and decision-making, and not to forget: happiness!"

Many of the others have managed to go into unusual ways: the political scientist Johannes Lenz, for example, came to the communications department of an advertising agency, the historian Stephan Zeilinger became a lawyer in a law firm and the mathematician Robindro Ullah put it into the personnel department of the Germans Train.

Newcomers are laughed at

Overview

This shows: crossings are anything but rare. Nevertheless, people who continue to do something different after their education are still considered exotic and have a correspondingly hard time.

They are ridiculed by straight-line careerists, suspected of being a former colleague, and not taken quite seriously by so many people. Already at the Casting they have to be better than the others, and they will have to prove themselves again in the professional life.

The ideal is straight!

Overview

Reason for the suspicion: Still in Germany a schnurgerader cv is considered the ideal. You do a vocational training or take a university degree to a certain profession - and you then practice it all your life. Whoever deviates from this ideal must be bad in his job - or he is simply an unreliable employee.

The reason: Personals like to remain on the safe side - because if the decision afterwards turns out to be wrong, they could easily come into explanation. However, companies have to rethink their thinking: new tasks and occupational imagery are now partly faster than technological development. This also requires greater flexibility and willingness for lifelong learning.

Courage to reorientate

Overview

Tom Diesbrock continues with his conception and advice: Tomorrow's brain is designed in such a way that we like to hold on to the familiar and tried-and-tested, but we are afraid of something new.

Therefore, we prefer to keep a safe job than to try something new. People who enter precisely this risk are therefore more committed and courageous.

Professional reorientation in 3 steps

Overview

In another Article series shows Diesbrock, who himself has stopped studying medicine and now works as a coach, how to approach the professional reorientation purposefully and in a planned way and what this has to do with the digital transformation.

And he encourages everyone who wants to start over again: "The brain is now considered to be able to learn for life, so if you decide to learn Japanese with 70, you have the hardware you need."

    Believe that the text will give lots of courage. Think that a lot of people would already like to do a new job. But the uncertainty keeps them in the old job. Even if he has long since failed to fulfill. Especially the profession should at least be carried out with enthusiasm. There are usually 1500-2000 hours per year that want to be lived. I wish all those who feel that a change is a lot of passion and courage.

    • Simone Janson

      Hello Reinhard,
      Thanks for the nice comment. We are happy when we can encourage people. I see it similar to you: The fear is great. Especially if, for example, there are mortgages on the house, a family is to be provided - all factors that make it difficult to change.
