So I'm just wondering: what does it look like in reality? For example, if I apply to Deutsche Bahn as a humanities graduate? Because that's usually not easy. But it's fair to say that some people just don't have much Lust have something new!

Dear dissatisfied advancing than translating!

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.

From 2009 she was a manager at Deutsche Post DHL and has been an advisor to the board since 2009. Today she says about her career: “You need Commitment and diligence, willingness to perform, enjoyment of work, determination and perseverance, willingness to take risks, a healthy self-confidence, assertiveness and decisiveness, and last but not least: luck!”

Newcomers are laughed at
