Careers for PhD holders - What are the opportunities and how can I find a job that suits me?
- Start: Feb 19, 2020
- End: Feb 20, 2020
- Speaker: Dr. Gaby Schilling (KEPOS)
- Location: MPI-CPfS, Dresden
The workshop will start with a reflection on the own CV to answer questions such as "What is the purpose of the CV?" and "What do I need to/want to demonstrate with my CV?" A thorough analysis of the past career from an inner and an outer perspective will allow the participants to find out personal strengths and qualifications. They will get an overview of different job opportunities other than academic research. We will analyze various job descriptions and the required qualifications and skills. Also personal values, motivations and preferences are taken into account to identify the suitable career path in or outside academia. The participants will learn how to present what they are looking for and how to find support for their next career steps.
PhD students in IMPRS-CPQM who are interested in participating in the workshop should contact one of the PhD representatives as early as possible.
