The content of this workshop is twofold: first, we start out with an overview of typical career paths of postdocs in German academia and beyond. Then, we will focus on your personal competences. By learning how to analyse your competences, you will achieve a deeper understanding of what you bring to the table for future employers and what job profiles fit you best.

In short, the aim of this workshop is to

  • help you understand the German academic system (particularly with regard to different job profiles)
  • teach you how to analyse your personal competences
  • enable you to identify alternative career paths that fit your personal competences
