What comes to mind when you think about your studies at HMKW?
"Where the journey began"
You acquired a Bachelor of Arts in Media and Business Psychology at HMKW Berlin. What is your current job position?
I am currently working as a Human Resources Business Partner for a non-profit organization called Data4Life in the area of healthcare digitization.
Did you get any further work experiences prior to your current position that you would like to share with us?
I worked as an HR consultant for an agency in Berlin. Here I was able to gain many insights into the Berlin start-up world. I also worked as an HR Development Consultant at DRIVE!MPACT in Barcelona. Although this is also a fairly small company, it is super exciting because we helped Berlin start-ups to set up a new location.
When did you figure out your preferred career path? How much was your choice influenced by the compulsory internship?
The internship was played more of an indirect role for me, as I used it to improve my intercultural skills and my Spanish. I was at the German-Guatemalan Chamber of Foreign Trade. Afterwards it was clear to me that I prefer an agile, digital company with flat hierarchies.
Why did you decide to study “Media and Business Psychology”? And what made you choose HMKW Berlin?
I find the course of studies covers an extremely wide range of topics. You can develop in the direction of media studies, classical business studies, but also more in the psychological direction. Since I was unsure what I was good at and what I wanted to do later, the course offered the perfect insight into many different "worlds".
