Coffee, Chat & Learn with Yvonne Schulist

“New Work is made for Career Changers”


Confidence in people’s abilities has been largely determined by testimonials and résumés, and the American dream of making it from the bottom up without a degree was rather the exception. Especially in more technical professions, women with or without university background were rarely given a lateral entry. However, demographic change and the shortage of skilled workers are unstoppable, and companies are slowly realizing this. With “New Work” the time has finally come for career changers, just like 30 years ago when the Internet conquered the world, diversity and lifelong learning are becoming more and more important in recruiting for companies today.

I will take you on a journey back in time 20 years as a career changer in IT and show you what was possible back then under difficult conditions and what will hopefully become easier today on the way to a digital age in which lifelong learning, diversity and the right mindset is more important than just a good university degree.

Key Learnings & Key Take Aways

    • Never let others discourage you from trying something that you believe in
    • Always learn what you really need on the job and not only what you think is expected from you
    • Dare to accept opportunities and challenges
    • Stay hungry. Stay foolish!
