Lack of work for the humanities-educated. Is this true?

Interest in the market for education in the humanities, while falling sharply, but in this type of school every year more and more reports of candidates. Humanitiescourses are fun, interesting and less demanding – that’s the main arguments of tens of thousands of applicants. Who looks forward, however, should think of exercise after school. When choosing high school graduates is still governed by emotions rather thanpractical considerations. The statistics are stark graduates find work in the humanities thrive with lesssuccess than legally, medically or educationally oriented faculties. Come by the worst work of science and agricultural areas, where unemploymentis up to ten percent. Without any chance humanities are not educated, but most must say goodbye to the idea of working in the field studied. “I studied philosophy and practically the only chance to use it, teach it to the next. And I do not want. So I’ll have to make do administrative work, where their knowledge at all is useless to me,” explains my situation a graduate of the Faculty of Arts Jonah Stibor . In comparison with the States of the European Union still does poorly Czech Republic. For example, in Great Britain works out third field trained graduates. We excel in the low unemployment of university graduates, which on averagedoes not even five percent. It is better to just about Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands. Wrong on that we are not in the modern phenomenon of over wisdom – workfor which a college degree is useless, carries 14 percent of graduates. This is incomparison to the rest of Europe again very positive indication. Record holder in this “discipline” is Spain, where a third of university-educated populationworking in positions in which the college is useless. Wait, that a university diploma in hand for us to run the company will work with isnot worth it. As statistics show internet job portals to offer non-technical workcorresponds to an average of over fifty candidates. And what the candidates employers usually the most value? “Above all, an excellent knowledge of foreign languages – preferably two. An important element is the personality, self-confidence, but also humility. Then there isindependence, the arts to engage and persuade, to sell their skills. Equally important is the ability to work with the information they receive relevant andsubsequently analyzed. big plus to graduates who already have work experience and habits, preferably from the private sector, foreign companies, “explained Martin Schneider from the recruitment agency Adecco.
