And then… …Coronavirus happened.
A few days before our interview we got an email from our contacts at Lufthansa: Could we delay the interview for a few weeks? Sure, no problem. Again a few days later a follow up: Lufthansa needed to postpone the interview for some time in the future.
At the same day Lufthansa stopped all hiring. Other German employers followed soon. Last week the number of new job ads in Germany dropped by 27.5% from the median -to about 180.000 per week.
By now Lufthansa has stopped 95% of all flights. We are in the middle of the Coronavirus crisis at the moment, it is unclear when we all can return to normal. (I write this on 28 March 2020.)
A moment of hope here in Germany: The rate at which new infections are discovered has slowed down. It used to be doubling in less than three days – at the moment the number of infections double “only” every six or seven days.
Let’s hope that we all stay safe.
Lufthansa Jobs in the future
One thing is clear, though: This crisis has altered the way how German employers look at their business. “That’s how we always done it” is no longer an option. You can see this already in the speed that “impossible” Homeoffice work, became an everyday reality for millions of German employees.
Hopefully German employers will also realize that it’s possible to teach new employees German on the job – and that lack of language should not be a reason to reject a highly skilled an motivated professionals.
After this crisis employers will think much harder about the results they try to achieve. That is good for everyone who doesn’t fit into the “ISO norm” of expectations. It levels the playing field.
I hope you stay safe.
