Insider Exchange - Career Outside Academia

The programme enables Postdocs and doctoral researchers of RUB to get in personal contact with experts outside academia to share experiences. The Insider will highlight requirements, strategies, working areas and they will discuss individual questions regarding professional development and career plans.

Especially if you already have plans for a career outside academia we encourage you to use this possibility and discuss your ideas with one of our Insiders.

In our growing network we match you with an Insider from a field, business area or company that meets your career plans – according to the field of interest you indicated in the contact form below. We help you arrange a single first meeting with the Insider and provide you with all the relevant contact information. Follow-up meetings are possible but will be in the responsibility of the Insider and you.

This is not a recruiting programme but an offer to assist you in active career planning.
