Venue/Virtual Veranstaltung:

Making a decision for a career choice is certainly often not easy; there are many, even contradictory answers to the questions "should I continue the scientific qualification - or go directly into a professional career?".

In some cases, different qualifications are needed for a scientific career than for a career in business or the public sector. The earlier you decide, the easier it is to position yourself well for the desired field of activity - by using the remaining time at university in a targeted way for your further education.

The workshop will help you make this decision.

In the workshop

  • analyze your personal competence profile (professional and interdisciplinary skills, practical experience and personal wishes)
  • on this basis, you will identify fields of activity in business or science that are of interest to you
  • develop an initial career plan suitable for the chosen field (how do I acquire the competencies relevant to my professional goal?)
  • In individual coaching, you can clarify questions that are too individual for the scope of the workshop.


  • To participate, you will need a laptop or computer with audio/video capability (microphone and camera). You will also need a stable internet connection.
  • You will receive an individual login code for the moodle course room for the workshop at least one day before the start of the preparation phase.
  • Preparation phase - prerequisite for participation: approx. 2 h, free time allocation: in the moodle course room you will find material and tasks for preparation. These assignments will be supervised by the trainer if needed.
  • at the online session we will work together on interactive learning situations from 9:00 to approx. 13:30 (short breaks) each day
  • the coaching slots will be arranged according to availability and will last between 30 and 60 minutes (depending on the number of participants).
