Targeted job applications
Dauer: 2 Tage // Sprache: englisch
Themenfeld: Karriere & Bewerbung // Zielgruppe: DoktorandInnen, GruppenleiterInnen, Post-Docs
“Submitting a job application? I haven’t done that in such a long time…”
What used to seem a trivial and straightforward task can be quite a challenge now, especially if you are coming from the academic world. However, success in the job application process can be instrumental in determining whether or not you will make your lifelong dream a reality, or, at the very least, what prospects you have for the future. We will discuss and prepare the written part of an application and the actual job interview in detail. Interactive exercises will encompass thorough analyses, followed by self-monitoring, and will finish off by focusing on how to present oneself in an assured manner.

Academic writing to stand out
“How can I make sure my paper stands out from the others…?” Excellent research is fundamental. But so is sharing it effectively with the broader academic community! This seminar supports participants in learning how to structure their academic writing so as to stand out from the crowd by producing writing that is clear, engaging and persuasive. Through its unique one-to one session offered on the second day of the workshop, this can be achieved for academic articles but also for policy briefs, media editorials or funding applications.
What are my further career movements?
What do I want? What are my skills and abilities? Maybe I should…? The big issues in life will only very rarely be solved through casual chitchat. It will take careful consideration to decide whether you can and want to remain in the academic field or instead choose a non-academic career. This workshop will provide guidance for finding out which path will lay a solid foundation for the future, both on a professional and personal level. A series of interactive exercises will give you a clear idea of where you are at and make it easier to define what options there are.
How to prepare successful funding applications
“If only I could get the funding for this great research idea…!” On the way to a permanent position, your researchers depend on ad-hoc funding to finance their project and prove their worth. This seminar supports participants in learning how to adequately prepare their own successful applications for scholarships, travel grants and research funding (both in Germany and beyond). The workshop includes face-to-face sessions to discuss individual situations and prepare successful applications through a dedicated tailor-made approach.
What would it be like to work in a non-academic environment? How would my profile be judged in such a context? At the end of this phase, you are normally unsure about how to proceed outside university if you are pursuing a career in the academic field. Opportunities within academia are limited whereas there are plenty outside of this particular field. This workshop will help you get a better idea of your aspirations, visions and objectives enabling you to assess the requirements and options of different career paths. We will assist you in identifying the right way to start the job application phase outside academia with a focus on your own individual career plan.
