Planning for your post-PhD career – June 24 @ 16:00 (online)

EPAR invites you to prepare for your post-PhD career in an online event on June 24th, 16:00-18:00 CET.

This session will be run in two parts, first featuring a talk from the career representative of Promovendi Netwerk Nederland (National PhD Network Netherlands) Charlotte de Blecourt and an interactive workshop from EUR’s very own career coach, Caroline van Halteren. Both parts of the event are intended to help PhD candidates at all stages of their trajectory, considering both academic and non-academic careers, to begin thinking through key opportunities, strategies and skills for their personal post-PhD journey. 

Note that the first 30 participants to sign up receive a free snacks and drink basket for the event! UPDATE: 30 participants have already claimed this free gift!

16:00-17:00: PhD careers in the current job market

Career options for PhDs are diverse and exciting, but there is rarely a clear path or single trajectory. Charlotte de Blecourt (career representative of Promovendi Netwerk Nederland) will share an overview of career options for both Dutch and international PhDs graduating in the Netherlands, with emphasis on typical challenges and opportunities faced while searching for a new job. The presentation provides suggestions for career development opportunities during and at the final stages of your PhD.

17:00-18:00: Organisational DNA & me: key skills and preferences for being successful in a new role after the PhD

Ideally a new role after your PhD is in line with the content of your research and PhD but have you thought of matching your preferred organisational style to that new opportunity? 

Caroline van Halteren (Coordinator Career Services and Career Coach at Erasmus University Rotterdam) will give an insight and practical guideline to match your DNA to the new organisation so your work happiness and success will enhance and even thrive.

18:00-ending: Social Spatial Chat

To close the event, we invite all participants to join a virtual social venue for an informal get-together. During this session, you can continue to converse with the speakers or simply chat with your fellow attendees.

You can register below (free of charge) and provide your address (in The Netherlands) if you want to have the opportunity to receive the gift package. We look forward to seeing you there!

Note: The registration deadline is Monday, June 21st @ 17:00.
