How to find a job after your PhD or postdoc?




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.
