Reflect - Doctoral Researchers
Whether you are in the midst of your doctorate or the end is already in sight, eventually you will ask yourself:
What is next for me professionally after my doctorate?
To answer this question, it is well worth taking a step back and reflecting on your personality, your career to date, and your future. Ask yourself questions such as:
- What do I want? What am I passionate about?
- What do I particularly enjoy in my daily work?
- What is important to me in future jobs?
- What skills can I contribute to future positions?
The more precisely you can answer these questions, the better you will be able to communicate your development wishes and actively shape your personal development. We offer you events and workshops during which you can receive important information and support to help you reflect as well as exchange ideas with others. We also offer individual career coaching with experienced coaches who can answer any questions you may have about your chosen path.
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.
Are you wondering what opportunities you have inside and outside of academia? Or do you already have a goal, but don’t know what the next step towards achieving this is? The “Explore” section contains information on various work areas and you can then develop your personal career plan in the “Define” section.
