A very important day

IMG_3451Hello my dears, today was a very important day for me. Why? Because I handed in my master thesis. That means: no more university!

I must admit, I was a little sad. I always liked to go to classes and learn new things. Most importantly however, it meant I didn’t have to go to work a full day and a full week 😉

Some of you might know that I have a Bachelors degree in Sociology and now finished my Master in communication sciences. However, now that I’ve already been working almost a year in the PR business, I started to wonder if it was the best way to do a Masters degree or if I should have started to work sooner. Don’t get me wrong, I think a Master is valuable and I certainly learned a lot but in the end I must say it didn’t really prepare me for the job that I have now. Of course I could use some of the theories I learned about but in the end that’s all they are: theories. They need practice to work. And no body ever asked me about my degree. And it certainly didn’t help me to get a better salary. But I guess that’s due to the business I’m in.

In the end I have to say, that I don’t know if my Master was really necessary. But I was able to learn a lot during those two years, on a professional as well as on a personal level. And I am really not sure if I had been ready to work after my Bachelor. By then I couldn’t even answer the question what I wanted to do properly. So while my studies didn’t really help me for my profession now, it certainly helped me to develop my skills and to grow on a personal level.

What about you? What do you do and do you think a degree is necessary for a successful career?

Concerning my outfit: I am wearing a dress from H&M (similar), a jacket from Ontour (similar), a denim jacket from Zara (similar) and old boots (similar).
