Workshop by Jacqueline von Saldern, Golin Wissenschaftsmanagement, Berlin

TF, Geb.F - SR-IV

An occupation in research and teaching, a career in the economic or service sector or in a non-profit organisation – after the doctorate there are numerous professional fields and career paths open for female researchers on the international labour market.
Because of this, strategic career planning is necessary. A series of important questions has to be answered: What are my goals and interests, what are my strengths and weaknesses? Where can I apply? Do I know what is expected of me and how to present myself?
On the basis of these questions the current application standards are conveyed and individual application strategies are worked out. With the help of selected examples from practice, the participants develop the competencies needed for a successful approach to the application process. The workshop deals in particular with the following topics:

- My qualification profile: How do I show my potential?
- Alma mater forever? Possibilities within and outside academia
- Clarification of my goals: What exactly do I know already, what is unclear?
- The labour market: Desirable and realistic career pathways
- Before the application: Strategies & stumbling blocks
- Networking & self-marketing: Building contacts
- Career strategies: My next steps.
