Studying history is important!

Studying History it's not just fun and educational, but also useful from a practical point of view.

It's time for the "revenge" from the humanities degrees indeed, as he claims Adecco.

This basically means that, if ever they had a negative sign, companies resumed searches for graduates in discipline ALPH - sail, less known than its STEM counterpart, that stands for Art, Literature, Philosophy and History - to be included in your own team.

Let's try to deepen numbers, reasons and what practical implications the phenomenon has.

Why study history (and not only)?

Studying History enriches one's cultural background and also helps to make a career

Let's start with why companies are looking for more and more graduates in the humanities.

They are "versatile" professionals, as long as you understand the adjective in its best meaning, and in which technical and sectoral skills and knowledge are better mixed with those soft skill indispensable for success in a constantly changing job market.

ALPH graduates, continues Adecco, they are gifted with that creativity, of that spirit of initiative, of that capacity for active learning and innovation that are among the personal characteristics most sought by companies in candidates.

Much more pragmatically it means that a graduate in the humanities is more able than a graduate in mathematical-scientific disciplines to bring innovation and creativity even in teamwork..

E’ why that, to stick to the numbers, beyond the 70% of those who have studied art, History, Philosophy, Literature or other similar disciplines, he found employment within one year of graduation.

It is time to take repetitions of history, in conclusion, and get back on track with your own ALPH study path, of whatever kind it is.

Where graduates in History or other humanities work

Let's dispel another false myth about the humanities in the company: it's not just the graduates in philosophy who today find work easily, nor is the world of human resources the one in which profiles of this type are most likely to be inserted.

A graduated in psychology, for example, is a very good candidate to deal with diversity and inclusion in the company.

These two issues are increasingly important to organizations, especially those who care about the satisfaction and well-being of their employees.

Cicero's famous phrase on history

A sociologist and / or a communication expert they are obviously the most suitable figures to take care of the presence digital of the company and to collaborate with the marketing department in establishing investments e budget for individual activities.

Who said it, But, that those who have studied History or Cultural Heritage cannot be used in the company to optimize databases?

Or that Visual Arts experts cannot be involved in the making of software for the Facial recognition for example?

There are, in other words, many more chance employment than we are used to thinking for ALPH graduates.

In most cases, these are specialized and technical professional profiles that promise interesting career opportunities.

How to increase them?

Always staying up to date and, if possible, continuing to study even after graduation with master, corsi, specializations, etc.

Fundamental perfect your English: career horizons are increasingly projected, and one's field of specialization makes little difference in this respect, on international horizons.

E, no less important, is to try to "verticalize" and "verticalising ”one's skills in a specific sector.

So it is clear to you, now, because it is better to study history? (photo: e
