Focus on the subjects you like the most and make sure to get contacts and practical experience through a part time job or voluntary work, says Anette Remme. She is working at The Norwegian Association of Youth with Disabilities's.
- What are the most important tasks of your job today?
– Project managing, which includes planning, reporting and keeping track of the budget. I am doing qualitative interviews to collect knowledge about disability and sexuality. The data will be analysed and used as the basis for developing a e-learning tool for health workers. My tasks also includes arranging workshops and seminars, making brochures and short movies.
- What do you like best about your job?
– I love that I can make use of my academic skills combined with organizing and being creative. In a project there are many different tasks that need to be handled. It is also a privilege to contribute to the fight for sexual rights and health rights for people with disability.
- How is the education from The Faculty of Humanities relevant in this job?
– Without my experience with qualitative method from the fieldwork I did for my master thesis, I would not be able to collect the data we need for this project. My background from social sciences is also useful in analyzing the data and suggesting solutions.
- What’s your best tip for new students who are concerned about their job opportunities after graduation?
