Set 1: Student jobs for M.Sc. Digital Engineering & Data and Knowledge Engineering students in Magdeburg.

In Set 1, we explore a bit about the student job opportunities in Magdeburg. For this, there is a series of interviews. To receive updates about the upcoming Podcasts, I would request you to subscribe to the channel on Spotify and/or Google Podcasts by clicking on the button below!

Who are interviewed? Current students of M.Sc. Digital Engineering and Data and Knowledge Engineering from the subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh) who are doing a job inside the university as a “HiWi”, or in a software company in Magdeburg.

Why this series of interviews? The target audience for this set is the international aspirants of the course M.Sc. DE and DKE at the Otto-von Guericke Universit├Ąt, Magdeburg. But new incoming students to this university and/or to Germany might find value from this series.

About the content in the interviews: All the guests are mostly asked the same set of questions, which allow them to speak about where they are working, their work. Further questions allow them the opportunity to express how different the two work cultures are and how important the German language is in their life at work.

What should the takeaway be for the listener? Many aspiring students either do not know what kind of students jobs are available. Not much of the information is up on the internet as well. This series should serve as a step towards further exploration of opportunities. The audience should be aware that I can not interview everyone. The list of people is not exhaustive and there are other different ways people get student jobs, other job roles that students do. What might have worked for the guests might not work for the listener, should s/he try to emulate the same steps! To explore further is the job of the aspirant/new student.

About the Labels: The labels are added after getting feedback from the listeners. The purpose is to give some amount of information which would assist them to choose which episode they might be interested in. Given below is the description of tags, with the colours!
