I would like from personal experience in the Economy other humanities scholars Courage to dare and jump in at the deep end – even if that is unknown at first and Anxiety power.

A look at my career:

I am from the Vocational Training her political scientist (minor subjects: history of South Asia, political science of Southeast Asia), graduated in February 1991 in Heidelberg. Like many of my fellow students, I toyed with the idea of ​​a doctorate and a university career or journalism for a while, but then decided against it.

background of decision against the Uni-Career were the deterrent examples that I got to know when I was a student assistant at the institute (Habilitation followed by social assistance...). The only argument against journalism was that I had never had time for internships or voluntary work because during my studies Money to earn had to.

Simply advertised for everything

So I just applied to all the ads that seemed halfway interesting and in which applications from humanities scholars were not expressly excluded. After only 20 applications, I ended up as a project manager with an organizer of management conferences and was supposed to hold specialist conferences on the subject IT to organize (without initially knowing more about IT than that you could use it as a replacement typewriter).

My colleagues in the department were an Anglist, a Romanist, a translator, a folklorist and - a business economist. This resulted in a career that includes various stations in the conference business, foreign assignments (Israel, USA, Austria) and personnel responsibility.

From the event organizer to the consultant

Today I am an independent consultant for Companys active in the field of conferences and further education as well as a lecturer for the further qualification of job seekers. So you can see, it works!

Because we humanities scholars have a few qualities that are immensely valuable. We can think laterally, we can think strategically across several stations/departments/partial decisions, we are mentally flexible and can always do it again fast take on new topics, reduce them to the core topics, Problems analyze and systematize and help with (often unconventional) solution proposals.

Do not be afraid!

It is important - not to be shy of looking into the economy, - not to perceive profit-making intentions as immoral or under our dignity - and to learn how profit and loss accounts look and read and understand the relevant number of columns (the business economists should quietly do it themselves ** gg **)

My conclusion: You just have to dare! WiWis and lawyers cook only with water - business management consists in principle only of common sense, the four basic operations and a lot of concealment tactics.
