Career Workshop I

Category: Transferable Skills

Time period:
16.01.2023 - 26.01.2023

Lecture(s): Iris Köhler is an accredited Kompetenzenbilanz-Coach (PerformPlus) and Career-Coach (Dr. Migge-Seminar). She conducts her career coachings in a holistic way. It’s not just about competencies and job opportunities, but also bigger questions like: How do you find purpose in your life? Where do you want to go in life? How can you live your values? She combines the cognitive-rational world with the intuitive-emotional world.
ECTS: 1

The majority of PhD holders leave academia and choose one of the many job options outside research. Many young scientists struggle with finding their own career path and they rarely take the time to reflect on what kind of work they would actually like to do, on what their values, interests and goals in life are. This is where this workshop comes in that covers the following topics:

- Discovering career and life goals: What kind of work would you like to do? What are your dreams and ideas for the future?
- Exploring career options: Where do people with a PhD outside academia work?
- Analyzing skills and competencies: What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing? Which “hidden” competencies are you maybe not aware of?
- Make a plan: What are the next steps?
