Talk 2: Finding a Career after Science

Thursday, November 17, 2022; 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

But how can you find good answers? This session first covers the question of which criteria and strategies can be used to make a good individual decision about an academic career. Then professional alternatives for academics outside of science are addressed. Strategies will be presented on how suitable professional alternatives based on your skills and interests can be developed as well as how the relevant job market can be explored.
