What is Career management and what tools can you use to work on that?
Join us in this webinar together with the company Newstart and to learn more about career management support.

The overall Career management objective is to reflect on, define, create, and communicate your personal mission and unique space in KI, in academia or the external world of work. To get perspecitve on your present situation and map out a plan for the future.

Career Management allows you to identify your abilities and define what really matters to you, to set goals and map out your next step. Career Management gives you the opportunity to pause and to reflect on where you are today, who you are and where you want to go.
