The job market for graduates of the study programme is generally broad and varied. Other career opportunities can be found in schoolbook and textbook editing, in publishing houses (e.g. in editing), in radio, TV and newspaper editorial teams, in PR and advertisement agencies, in libraries and archives, in international organisations, at Goethe Institutes, as well as in the cultural sector (e.g. as dramaturge at theatres). With additional business qualifications, they can find employment in business enterprises (e.g. in marketing and distribution or in human resources).

For this reason it is important to start gaining practical work experience in relevant organisations early in the degree programme. In this way students can promote themselves as competent professionals in practice and make important professional contacts. The likelihood of finding a good position is definitely heightened if the student is flexible when it comes to commuting or even moving abroad. Good English language skills are particularly important when it comes to the international job market.
