Career Workshop
The end of a PhD or a PostDoc comes along with some essential questions: What comes after my PhD or my current PostDoc? Which options do I have? What do I really want to do? What is important to me? Which competencies do I have? How do I put myself into a good light without being too modest? How do I find a position and apply to it? How can I support my own career? How do I get in touch with host institutions or potential employers? How do I best prepare for a job interview?

The objective of this career workshop is that researchers
• explore their individual answers to these questions while obtaining feedback to their thoughts, worries and hopes by the group and the trainer;
• try out different methods, which are helpful at any stage of reorientation in their careers might it
be in academia, industry or as an entrepreneur;
• develop a good grasp of their skills and competencies;
• uncover their personal preferences;
• understand the functions of the different elements of an application and hiring process, and
• obtain feedback on parts of their application for a position in academia or industry.

To achieve this, this workshop provides targeted information and plenty of time to try out methods which are used by the trainer in individual career coaching.

This workshop provides a mixture of presentations, group work and individual work. Participants will have the opportunity to dive into further details of their own application documents. There will be the opportunity to obtain some feedback - either in the group or individually.

• A first understanding of what they want to do in the future;

• A detailed understanding of skills and competencies;
• Building blocks for a job application in academia or industry;
• Feedback on strengths and weaknesses;
• Plan: How do I find the right position for me?
• A set of tools and methods to go through the same process whenever needed.
