You want to find an attractive job after your PhD degree? You want to decide if you stay in academia or choose a way to industry, politics, NGOs or journalism or found a start up? While asking that, you don´t know how your first career step should go on, if you are good or known enough? The rules on the employment market seem to suggest, that you should be happy to get any job and maybe should take also jobs with great compromises.

In this workshop you get to know another way of looking on career building. The method of the self-determined job search uses the knowledge about the hidden employment market and networking rules and supports you, to believe in your wishes and the power of your active behaviour.
