Careers in German universities and research institutes are difficult. Towards the end of your PhD or at the beginning of your postdoctoral years you need to decide whether you like to continue your career up to the professor or if you leave academia. This step is difficult to the biggest part of PhD-students because until then they did not find or try alternative career paths.
During the workshop we will first find out which competencies you have gained until now. Based on your competencies we will explore the academic and non-academic labour market and develop ideas of job profiles that fit you. You will receive an introduction to the job search and learn to know relevant job listings. Furthermore we will discuss if it might be an alternative to start your own business.
Qualification objective Learning how to create ideas to find career goals and job opportunities that fit you.
