Enrolling a PhD program is a major career decision. And most PhDs have trained their ability to both working hard and to keeping up with a laser like focus to reach their final goal, the thesis.

Although the PhD itself is an accomplishment your future career success will not be served on any silver plate. To land your first job beyond academia you need a job searching strategy. Such a strategy involves:

  • Transformation of your academic CV to an industrial Resume
  • Learn to understand the recruitment business
  • Major differences on how employer value your skills
  • Learn how to describe the value you offer to employers in your motivational letter and resume

In this webinar you will get insight to must-try career coaching techniques for a successful job searching strategy. We will cover basic tips & tricks on writing a killer Resume. Why self-awareness matter to describe your strengths and weaknesses, the importance of having an optimised LinkedIn profile, and why you must stay tuned with the labour market post-corona.
