Recent German majors have entered careers in teaching, research, translation work, foreign service, international business, and international service organizations. Students who minored in German are employed in journalism, the natural and social sciences, and in work involving transcultural communication. Some Wooster graduates who major in german choose to spend a year in Germany on internships with German companies and organizations.
Some of our students have explored the opportunities to teach English to German Gymnasium students. Kristin Dill, who graduated in 2004 with a double major in German and History, enjoyed her year of study abroad in Berlin so much that she applied for and won a Fulbright Teaching Assistantship in Vienna in the year following her graduation. Kristin is one of many German majors who have been awarded Fulbright teaching assistantships in German-speaking countries.
As Fulbright teaching assistants, Jessica Riviere '05 spent 2005-2006 near Berlin, Germany, and Leah Suter '06 spent 2006-2007 in Vienna, Austria. After her year teaching English in France, Ashley Lackovich '06 began graduate school in German at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
Upon graduating, Heidi Erdmann '02 had a year-long internship with the Siemens company in Munich. She is now Marketing Communications Manager of Altova, Inc., an Austrian-American software company just outside Boston. Cecily Raynor '04 worked as an intern for the regional Chamber of Commerce in Bremen and has more recently completed an M.A. at the London School of Economics. She is planning on pursuing graduate work in Germanic linguistics in the future.
