CWins51593yHey! The hardest time to get a job is right after getting the degree because "you're missing experience". If you can get that job and you also like the field, i think it's a good start.
Usually students, even part time working students don't have a pile of money around that could be used to pay the rent while the freelance business is not yet running so well yet,so saving some cash could be useful to start, i mean if you want to have that way as an option.
And now i switch language cuz reasons:
Da wo ich mal gewohnt habe gab es so einen Berufs-&Technikerschulenkomplex und die hatten da vom Arbeitsamt gesponserte Programme zur Firmengründung, auch Abends und am Wochenende. Vielleicht wäre sowas eine Variante um den Geschäftlich-Rechtlichen Kram zu lernen, wenn es sowas bei dir auch gibt.
Good luck anyway!
It should be clear to them that if you finish studies, you'll have higher salary requirements. If they want you there and willing to pay for that, and you also like the job and see challenge there, go for it. You can always find another place if it doesn't work.
I don't really like the idea of freelancing. It's not as good as it seems and you can probably be better off in a good job, especially after some time goes on.
Freelancing doesn't equal entrepreneurship, and if you're thinking of starting your own company, you can start working on it regardless of having a day job or not.
rfc716829433yThank you all for your perspectives. (No, really.)
I got a good night's sleep and everything is looking less fuzzy now, your encouragement surely helped.
The conversation seemingly really caught me off guard yesterday.
@CWins Thanks, saving up to start is a good idea, I didn't think about that though I also save up for other things. :D
Also: Ja, auf solchen Firmengründungsevents war ich schon, gerade an Unis wird einem das ja quasi nachgeworfen. Ansonsten habe ich vorletztes Jahr so ein Abendseminar zu Existenzgründung mitgemacht und das war recht informativ z.B. was Gewerbeanmeldung und steuerrechtliche Implikationen angeht.
@nptr Yeah, that's what I' m thinking, too, though @electrineer has a point that is no so uncommon to only get a bachelor.
@mzeffect I may not share your views on freelancing, but I realized that I still see some challenge there, which is a good point for me. Thanks!
@AlexDeLarge I probably have to tell myself exactly that more often. Thank you.
(reading tags... done) Okay. *hug*
stisch50493yA degree is a means to an end. Consider that you may not actually need one at all. *NOT* that I advocate dropping out or not chasing a master's degree.
You're at a crossroads, so sit down and meditate. Ask yourself, "wtf am I doing?"
You can do anything you want. Anything. A Master's degree is an expensive piece of paper, but if the process of getting it achieves some goal for you (e.g. some vital knowledge you can't get online or in the field) go get it.
Good luck! I hope you find what you want. :)
rfc716829433y@stisch I agree with you, I don't need it, but academic learning can be quite ... inspiring, I think? There are so many things currently being researched and knowledge you can be "infected" with.
(Also, it's probably worth mentioning that a Master's degree in Germany is relatively cheap compared to the US. Money is tight but I won't be in debt at the end.)
But yes. Thoughts are now in the process of condensation, so during the next weeks I'll surely come up with a "roadmap" for the next years I feel comfortable with.
Thank you. :)
