Workshop “Goodbye Academia”

Have you enjoyed research and teaching in the past years, but now you think it is time to
change? Or you are just fed up, but are aware that frustration alone will not lead to a
smooth transition out of academia. Maybe you are not sure yet whether to stay in academia
or not, but would like to learn more about other possibilities before making any decision? In
this course, which has been specifically developed for PhD students and postdocs in the
natural sciences, we will not only broaden your view about everything you can do with your
qualification, but also give you practical tips on how to reach your personal goals.

This is an interactive course with exercises and real-life examples (30% theory, 70% practial
examples). There is a special emphasis on shaping your professional career and how you
present yourself to future employers.
