What does a media and information services specialist do at the University of Kassel?
In comprehensive school, I did an internship at the Kassel University Library and got to know working life for the first time. I was so lucky because my first internship showed me relatively quickly that this was my dream job. Before that, I had no idea what was going on in the background of a library.
What is your motivation for this profession?
I love being able to provide information to anyone and everyone and being able to help with questions. That simply makes me happy. My father once quoted Confucius, and that's what I think of every time someone asks me about my motivation: "Choose a job you love and you'll never have to go back to work.
Are there moments or things that always impress you?
It's almost surreal how much money is regularly spent on media - that amazes me every time. If you buy a book privately, it's only a tiny fraction of what a library spends on an e-book package, for example.
Ask yourself beforehand if you ...
- you are enthusiastic about books and other forms of media.
- enjoy working with computers and people alike.
- feel comfortable in libraries.
- like to work independently.
or if ...
- you don't like to work indoors.
- you don't like administrative work.
- you have no sense of order.
