Define - Doctoral Researchers
Once your goals are clear, one specific question will come to the fore: what do I need to do to achieve these?
Perhaps you are considering leaving your familiar environment. Or maybe you want to learn more about entirely new professional fields and to contact someone for an informational interview, for example. The next steps often need to be planned and take some courage.
Don’t get sidetracked! Plan well and do not assume that your career progression will be linear—careers often also involve lateral moves. Remain realistic and remember that regardless of whether you are planning to change careers or acquire a new skill, the next steps will take time.
We support you in the development of your personal plan to best achieve your goals and help you adjust or define partial goals should you no longer be able to implement those you have already set. We offer various formats and individual career advising for this. There is also a webcast for planning a career in- or outside academia that provides ideas for addressing your personal career planning. Use our form to request more information.
We recommend that you subscribe to our mailing list for doctoral researchers to remain up-to-date with our offers. We will send you information on our latest program, additional offers, and free workshop places.
Not yet sure of your career goals? Are you wondering what opportunities you have inside and outside of academia? In the “Reflect” section, we help you explore your values and skills so that you can develop professional goals based on these. The “Explore” section contains information on different possible career paths.
Are you wondering how you can reconcile your career aspirations with your desire to have a family? Or do you already have a family and want to know more about the support the University can offer you? Our colleagues from the Family Office can supply all important information and are happy to advise.
