Personal Skills for Your Career

Workshops: Career Orientation, Leadership & Management

A doctorate opens up many career paths: in research as well as outside academia.

Your doctorate provides you with an advanced scientific qualification with in-depth specialist knowledge, sound methodological competence, and an extended research expertise in your field.

But a doctorate also qualifies you beyond research by advancing your personal competencies that are relevant for various career paths: working independently and self-organised, developing problem-solving strategies, transferring knowledge, strengthening communicative and social competencies, taking personal responsibility, thinking structuredly in complex contexts.

Your research expertise, together with your advanced personal competencies, is an important career factor for all career paths: in academia, industry, or the public sector.

We support you in profiling your personal skill sets for a career in- and outside academia. Our workshops provide orientation for your career planning and convey initial qualifications in career-related, professional skills:
