In today’s science landscape, a strategic, proactive and individual approach to career development is essential. However, scientists are often left alone with the complex task of sourcing and evaluating the available career options, as well as deciding on a career path that fits their interests and motivations. In this interactive workshop participants will identify their transferable skills and drivers. We will guide them to explore different career options and analyse which career paths might match their interests and skills. We will enable participants to communicate their skills, goals and interests in an impactful way. Through extensive practice in providing evidence for their skills and achievements, we will empower participants to master the application process.
