How to find a job after your PhD or postdoc?

Start next training 9 October

Look beyond your PhD or postdoc horizon.

In this training you will learn how to translate your competences, knowledge and skills acquired during your PhD and/or Postdoc to the demands of employers in various sectors, by describing them in tangible results. You will also train your application- and networking skills and learn to get the most out of LinkedIn.

The trajectory is a combination of 3 individual meetings with a career coach and 4 training sessions. The individual consults offer you the opportunity to pay attention to personal career- and application matters and to prepare job interviews or network talks. During the training sessions you practise your presentation- and application skills and you exchange experiences with other PhDs and Postdocs.

The career coaching is directed towards orientation on the labour market, both inside as outside the academic world.
