PhDs get to grips with their international career development
Target Audience: Maximum of 12 PhD students or Post-Docs. The workshop series is delivered at university premises.

Price: 3050,- Euro (ex. VAT, travel & accommodation expenses, if applicable).
As a last-year PhD student, I participated on the course “What about your career?” at my university organized by the Expertise in Labour Mobility (ELM). I truly recommend this course to those PhD students who are in the second half of their project and have already started thinking about their next step after the PhD. The course is especially helpful for those PhD candidates who want to consider to work options outside academia.
Through various self-reflective exercises, it has become much clearer for me what my career expectations and priorities in life are, which I’m sure enable me to select my next job more consciously.
Before the course I felt lost about how to start the job hunting. Now I know where and how to start looking for a new job (e.g., which websites, career events etc. to check, how to ‘sell’ my work experience on the job market). In short, the course was very well structured. I simply feel equipped with all the knowledge I need to find a new job that suits me. I am much more optimistic than before the course that I will be successful with my job application(s). Thanks!
