For doctorate-holders with an international background, it can be a real challenge to get into the non-academic job market in Germany at the end of a doctoral or post-doc position. The entry routes into jobs are not always transparent, candidates are often not well-informed about what to expect in the application process and not everyone can offer German language skills. Where and how you can look for a job outside classic academia depends on your qualifications and skills set,  on your individual life situation as well as on knowing about possible entry paths, the (unwritten) rules of the game and other additional parameters. This workshop offers assistance with this and will encourage participants not just to prepare for this transition in a focused way but to create an action plan which they can implement. Participants will develop their own profile and identify their personal competencies. They will be informed about the landscape of the German job market for international PhD-holders and will be given advice and tips for planning the next steps. Drawing on numerous case studies of international PhD-holders who have successfully entered the German job market, strategies for success will be highlighted and participants will gain the confidence to get started and concretize their next steps!

*Creditability within the kick-off seminar

For reasons of respect and fairness towards all participants and the workshop leaders, participants who miss more than 10% of the workshop are considered not to be present. You will therefore not receive a certificate and you will not be able to use the workshop in question to unlock funds or acquire further qualifications.

Before you register, please confirm with your supervisor/employer that you are free to participate in the course on that date.
