Success is also a matter of attitude
Those who know the status quo of their knowledge and can name their own abilities have already created a good foundation to argue, for example, in the application process, why one is suitable for the place where the job is written. In the end, it is not just about convincing the opposite of why you are suitable, but why you are simply the best candidate for the job. And this is precisely where a tactic begins, which is suspicious for many intellectual scientists: to sell well.
Especially young professionals are hard to convince themselves. Too loud were the voices that screamed from the first semester on, that humanities scholars will have a hard time, and anyway: who needs humanities scholars? But those who do not believe in themselves will not get one HR can convince of themselves. In case of doubt: Fake it till you make is! Meaning, one is to be confident for so long, until one is self-confident at some point. With the idea to slip into a role, then the "sell yourself" works better.
The song of Vitamin B
Why are so few humanities scholars on professional networks like XING? Many probably think, "It has nothing to do with me, it's a different world," or "I do not know anyone." It is often the personal and professional contacts that open up new opportunities and opportunities and can even lead to a job at the decisive moment.
While building a personal network costs time and effort, it pays off in the end. XING does not only offer the advantage of staying in touch with the people you've come to know (keyword praxiserfahrungen!), But is also a good platform to draw attention to your own abilities, knowledge, degrees and interests. Here one can purposefully influence what image one wants to give in public.
Leave the comfort zone
Gathering experience experiences, reflecting on your own knowledge and your own abilities, standing up for yourself and cultivating your own network - everything sounds quite simple. Nevertheless, many spiritual scientists are unfortunately very hard in these disciplines.
It is not without reason that passion for the subject and the feeling of self-realization are frequently cited as motivations for spiritual studies. Whoever wants to make a career is likely to choose other courses. It is also perfectly fine to go out of personal passion when choosing the course of study. After all, you are only good at what you really like. Nevertheless, the economic aspect of an apprenticeship can not be entirely covered. Here, it is easy to leave the comfort zone of your own studies occasionally in order to set the course for a successful professional future.
