Application training for highly qualified academics

At the latest towards the end of the PhD, the question of the further running of your career becomes increasingly pressing. Often, the decision for or against an academic career forms the centre of these questions and all too often it is intertwined with a strong feeling of success or failure. Although the decision for or against academia can surely be read as setting your career, the possibilities for highly qualified academics are much more various and richer than merely working in- or outside university.

This training aims at extending the participants’ perception with regard to their different career options (in- and outside academia) and offers a hands-on approach on the participants’ application documents in order to achieve an authentic way of applying.

Content

  • Career paths in-and outside university:
    Working in higher education beyond research and teaching
    Post-PhD exit strategies
  • Reading and understanding job adverts and different application processes
  • Applying in an authentic and professional way
  • Dealing with negative or no reply
  • Interview training
