Webinar: "Know yourself to live an inspiring career”


Webinar Abstract:

Transitioning from academia to the professional sector can be difficult as there are so many jobs to discover and possible directions to take. In this webinar we will discuss a strategy that you can use to search for your dream job. This approach is based on the fact that knowing yourself helps you recognise the jobs that will best suit your personality and skills.

Using the DISC profile, we will show that there are 4 main behavioral patterns. There is a direct correlation between your preferred work pattern and the jobs on the market and this webinar will help you understand which jobs will fit you the best. Next, we will show that your PhD is so much more than doing research, as there are so many transferrable skills. We will also discuss the different types of contracts offered in the scientific job market.
