And before? In the years 1995-1998 Janson worked as a freelance journalist for various daily newspapers in the Rhine-Neckar area. These were Die Rheinpfalz in Ludwigshafen, the Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung in Heidelberg and the Mannheimer Morgen as well as the business magazine Pfalz of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Palatinate.
From 1998-2003 Janson was initially a freelance author and later a permanent editor for the magazines “abi Berufswahlmagazin” and “Uni”, which are published by the Federal Employment Agency. Numerous articles were published in print on topics such as “Trial course job night and co”, “What does a course cost?” or
"How important is teamwork?"
Between 1999 and 2003 Janson worked several times for United Nations Volunteers, the UN Volunteer Program and at several international conferences of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the UN Climate Secretariat, the United Nations Environment Program and the Society for Technical Cooperation (GTZ), including the 5th World Climate Conference in Bonn in 1999.
Janson also worked for the Linke Medienakademie in Berlin and researched, among other things, an article on state subsidies and alternative financing models for the press, as well as for the Ludwig Ehrhard Foundation. The article on the topic of fair trade via world shops was published by me in Klartext - magazine for social market economy No. 32.

During the study
During his studies, Janson worked for various media and wrote, for example, book reviews:
The text “Unpathetic view of a martyr of the world revolution” appeared in the Kölnische Rundschau. Peter Glotz has analyzed the consequences of digital capitalism. A text that also appeared in the Kölnische Rundschau.
Occasionally she also dealt with classical historical topics - after all, that's what she studied. This review of what the ancient Greeks thought of the ancient Egyptians appeared in the Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung Heidelberg.
She was also active in Italy: in Siena, incidentally the birthplace of Gianna Nannini, to attend a reading by the Italian author Susanna Tamaro. At that time, Tamaro became famous in Germany with her novel “Go where your heart carries you”. My text about Susanna Tamaro appeared in the Italian daily “Il Cittadino”.
A review of an imaginary car trip appeared in the “Willi - Stadtmagazin Bruchsal”. The text shows how convenient audio books are.
The story of Popess Johanna became world famous as a novel. Now there is a non-fiction book on the subject that is unfortunately not very convincing. My review was published in the Kölner Stadtanzeiger.
Exciting, important topic, good book about Nazi Germany and the film industry in the Cologne Rundschau. A review of a new book about Anne Frank also appeared in the Cologne Rundschau.
A book series of the scientific bookseller wants to make spirit scientists fit for the Internet. My review has been published in the Kölner Stadtanzeiger.
