Good preparation for the next step of your career is essential. A solid publication record is important but do you know what are other vital determinants of success? It is your own responsibility to develop yourself as a professional - not only as a scientific researcher - and make the most of your potential.
PCDI calls all early career researchers to take charge of their career. Make sure you start timely and pay attention to your transferable skills as well. Balanced professional development makes you more valuable to employers - certainly to those outside academia. But where to start and how to tackle career development?
- Why would you at all consider careers outside academia?!
- What can you do to increase your chances of success within and outside academia?
- When should you decide to pursue a career in academia or not?
- What are transferable skills and what opportunities exist to develop them?
- Are there professional challenges for PhD graduates outside academia?
If yes, then where to start looking?
- What are do and don'ts in career development?
Would you like to have these questions discussed at your Institute / Faculty / Research Day / Career Event / PhD Association to raise awareness on career development of young researchers on temporary contracts? After all this topic concerns the majority of PhD graduates, as 90% of them will (have to) make the transition out of academia.
PCDI is regularly booked to give presentations and workshops in academia. Feel free to contact us to discuss the options, ranging from 30min talks, half-day workshops to in-company course programmes.
