Career Thursdays are back and improved!

Are you feeling lost in terms of what your future career will be?

Do you want to profile yourself in the best possible way and showcase your skills to external companies and research institutions alike?

Do you have questions about what the Dutch labor market looks like?

If you responded positively to any of these questions then Career Thursdays workshops are the right thing for you!

We are offering Career Thursdays workshops (skill development, talent management and advanced career workshops) with Rob every other Thursday in the month, starting February 2019, and for the duration of 4 Hours instead of 3.

Price: 17,50 Euros per workshop. Minimum 10 participants. Maximum 15.

For whom: suitable for PhD candidates at every stage in their PhD trajectory. The sooner you  narrow down your qualities, profile your skills and define what type of career you envision the better the chances at finding future career pathways.

Besides skills development and talent management sessions, we will also be offering Advanced Career Thursdays workshop to satisfy the craving needs of our PhDs for a more advanced, practical and hands-on experience.

In the Advanced Career Thursdays workshops you will practice for an interview, practice promoting yourself to potential employers, work on teasing out your key skills and features learnt during the PhD process, besides research skills and many many more.

We recommend taking both Skills Development and Talent Management workshops or at least one prior to joining the Advanced Career Thursdays workshop.
