As you might have noticed, I haven’t blogged for quite a long time. The reason is that I have a new job that I really have to put a lot of effort in. Since December, I am working as a Social Media journalist at CHIP Online, the biggest IT-news-platform in Germany.
Yes, it’s true: I have worked for CHIP Online before. In this company, I made an internship which was a very important part of my academic studies. At CHIP Online, I collected my first experiences in online journalism, even though I was in another department. Now, almost a year after my practical semester has ended, I am back.
Why did I decide to work for the company again? Well, there are many reasons: First of all, I love Munich. The city has everything – except cheap prices. Furthermore, I like the company’s working atmosphere because the team is friendly, caring and competent. But the real reason why I moved to Munich was another one: the exciting work and the perspectives.
I got an apprenticeship contract as an online journalist which is limited to two years. At the end of 2014, it will be decided wether I can continue to work for the company as a journalist or not. My main task is to write news and articles about the topic I care about most: Social Media. Like in the technology-sector, there are a lot of developments in the field of Social Media. As there is never a lack of innovations, I always have something I can write stories about. And as Social Media is getting more relevant for businesses from day to day, it’s worth investing time in following and exploring its trends.
