Career Orientation in and outside of academia with application of case studies.
For many early career researchers, it is not entirely clear how to translate their experience and skills gathered through academic work and studies to actual job advertisements or they are not sure how to improve their CV to reach their prospective career goal. The FYORD program aims to inform its members on possibilities on the job market, enhance self-esteem in early career researchers and thus smooth the way towards a successful career inside and outside of academia.
In this year´s FYORD Retreat, four main career paths will be introduced: Academia, Private Sector, Public Sector and Entrepreneurship. Participants will not only learn about what those career paths may contain, but also how to translate skills and experience from real CVs to actual job advertisements in four short workshops. Participants can choose two out of the four workshop topics, since the workshops will be held simultaneously.
Additionally, participants have the opportunity to discuss with their peers and our invited guests, which key competencies are generally needed on the job market and how an academic education provides for them.
- What career paths are there in and outside of academia?
- Which key competencies are needed in the different career paths and does an academic background provide those?
- How can academic CVs be apllied to real job advertisements?
- Which competencies do I already bring into the job market?
