India is Calling – Kick-Start Your International Career

Posted by Peter Braun • Monday, July 19. 2010 • Category: Global Career
To gather life experience, more and more students all over the world decide to learn other languages, study or work in other countries, and travel abroad. During our university lecture tour from 17.05.2010 to 02.06.2010 at eight different German universities we were thrilled by the high numbers of international students attending our lecture “India: A New Destination for Career Fulfilment”.

Reflecting on academic experiences and the question how to utilise their education for an international career, students around the Western world now look towards new geographical directions to seek career fulfilment. More and more India is becoming a focus point for ambitious individuals pursuing their studies there, doing an internship or joining the Indian labour market after graduation.

Capturing India - Interview with Photographer Enrico Fabian

Posted by Stefan Heil • Saturday, April 24. 2010 • Category: Global Career
Recently we found the time to conduct an interview with photographer / photo-journalist Enrico Fabian which we wanted to do for the longest time already. We know Enrico Fabian already since he started taking pictures as a profession and have since supported him for his critical approach in photography. His works are often uncomfortable but beautiful at the same time, and one can clearly see the social agenda he is following with his choice of projects.

Since 2002 Shammi Kapoor (age 33) is working as a Hindustani language teacher in New Delhi. Besides being a brilliant trainer, he is a fantastic communicator, who loves sharing his cultural knowledge with his students and wants to get them in touch with the local people. He talked to us about his passion to teach, the importance to study the local language and his experiences working with language students from all over the world. If you ever thought about learning Hindustani / Hindi / Urdu, Shammis point of view will surely be an interesting read for you.

"After exploring Milano and London, coming back to India made me feel that I know the place for the first time."

Norwegian photographer Roger J. Renberg (www.renbergphoto.com) and Indian fashion designer Ankur Gupta (www.ankurgupta.co.in) both based in New Delhi, compose their art in an own way. Working with each other, they put all their talents together and created a sum that is larger than the individual parts. We talked to them about intercultural collaborations in the fashion industry, the sources of their inspiration, and what it takes to reach professional fulfillment.

Namaste Deutschland - Studying in Germany

Posted by Nishtha Prakash • Tuesday, March 9. 2010 • Category: Global Career
When at first, the thought of exploring and learning at and from a new country occurred to me, just like many other young Indian students and professionals, I thought about USA, UK and Australia. These are two destinations where Indians like to go to work and study. Getting into these cultures is easier as compared to cultures in Europe because language barrier does not exist. However, when I decided to move to a new land, I was not only looking at a good educational opportunity but also an intense living and traveling experience that would give me new perspectives and perhaps even change them.
