Perhaps you are thinking: “What on earth will I do with an academic?” But there are plenty of examples of companies increasing profitability to show that hiring a graduate in a smaller company is an excellent option.
What tasks can a graduate handle?
A graduate can handle many different kinds of tasks in a company – from individual complex tasks to ad hoc tasks that need an all-rounder approach.
In other words, when you employ an economist, a Master of Arts graduate, an engineer or any other kind of graduate, your company can carry out a range of important tasks while gaining new input and skills that can help secure your company for the future.
Tasks that graduates can solve include: Marketing
Strengthening your company’s commercial potential in the short term and in the long term by carrying out market and market segment analyses, working on marketing, sales strategies, etc. Development
In both research and innovation of high-tech products, developing and cultivating new market opportunities and business areas. Communication
Generating new awareness about the company’s products, services and results through targeted communication. At the same time, a graduate with high levels of proficiency in, for example, languages can always be found to set up new initiatives in sales and export relations abroad. Planning and project management
Improving the long-term basis of a company through planning and prioritising of its tasks and resources, etc. A graduate can also help improve production management and quality assurance. Personnel management
Improve the company’s use of personnel with the optimal exploitation of human resources, qualifications, employee interviews, organisation, etc. More than 100 options
