Students at German universities have shown themselves to be a risk-free lot in a survey by Ernst & Young. The civil service is their most popular choice of future profession, while job security is valued above all else. [ ] The number was higher for female students (36 percent), but government work also came in first among men with 23 percent choosing it as their preferred career path. [ ]
Other future positions popular with students were in the fields of science (19 percent) and culture (17 percent).
Consultants and auditors were the private sector jobs most interesting for students in Germany (15 percent), followed by the automotive industry (14 percent).
But the financial industry had a particularly bad reputation with students. Just six percent said they wanted to work there, despite average starting salaries of 42,700.
Public sector workers on average make 30,300 at the beginning of their careers.

German police officers stopped and fined this guy:
Reason: Against regulations, he does not have a brake on the right grip of his handlebar.
Back to the old ways, eh? “The law is the law” and they hide behind it no matter how unjust.
So the “German Dream” is working as a bureaucrat?
At least they want to work. I’m not so sure their American peers are so industrious.
That’s not work.
It’s an honest acknowledgment of where to be in a bureaucratic state - be ruling class and you have it made. Never met one yet who wasn’t convinced he/she was smarter than the people whose lives they were regulating, and never met one yet who actually was.
I still see a difference between “honest” and “candid”.
Seriously, what kills me about this (and most things Progressive) is the blithe faith that the True Believer is a special person capable of a responsible exercise of power that is denied to lesser creatures. 90% of them think they're in the top 10%. Maddening.
So, it is not surprising that young kids would rather stick to what they know than voluntarily become a slave of some evil, capitalist devil!
