Heading into the future, headed by data
Since I set my eyes on Germany, working here has always been a high priority. This MOOC would provide me with more information to better navigate the German job market. Currently living in Germany, I am enrolled in an International Business and Technology course at a local university, hoping to one day land a job right here. For me, work life balance plays a big role in choosing a job; it is always work to live, never live to work. I seek an environment where I am giving space to develop but at the same time am surrounded by talented individuals who are further in their own respective careers. Within the next year, my goal is to land a job at a multi-national company which helps me understand more about operations and logistics. As for the future, I see myself working heavily with data, especially since data has been identified as the new oil, capable of propelling us into a new era.
