Our partner graduate school yDiv offers a career planning workshop for PhD students in their first year.

Career planning is a process that requires i.a. self-reflection, exploring of options and networking – activities that young researchers should engage in right from the beginning of their PhD project. This short introductory course is designed to give new doctoral researchers an overview of career planning and to create awareness for its importance. The following topics are covered in the course:

  • What is career planning and why think about it now, at the start of your PhD?
  • Where do people with a PhD work and which competences are required?
  • Planning without a target – how can you prepare for your next step, if you don’t know yet what that next step will be?
  • How does career exploration work and how can you set up your own IDP?
