OpenUni has been active for over a year now. A year of many learnings, both for event participants and the team. And a year of evolution. As part of this evolution, we have decided to switch our working language and our entire services to English.
We are aware that this might lead to discomfort for people who are not used to having conversations in English. On the other hand, using English at our events opens the door to the big international community in Vienna. This ensures a mix of participants from different cultures which helps to get a more diverse discussion.
Our social media activities, chiefly on LinkedIn and Instagram, reach out to a global audience. We are looking into the future of offering career coachings and trainings to an international audience. And German is an obvious stumbling block here.
So these are the main reasons why we are switching from German to English.
We say a big “Dankeschön” to our germanophone followers and hope to have the pleasure of having you on board also in the future.
