There are many questions if you start looking for a job in a company the first time. The series of seminars “Find a Job in Germany´s Industry” gives an overview of most important topics related to the job search specifically for international PhDs who are looking for a job outside academia. This series of seminars consist of three consecutive one-day modules. You have to register for each of them separately.


Course description

In the module “Working Conditions & Culture Training” you will get to find out everything about the employment contract, general conditions and other legal guidelines when in work, for example the number of holidays you are entitled to and your hours of work. A specific focus is given to salaries which also includes research tips and a calculation sheet.
