Training and Advice

From origin a recruitment agency we developed into a consultancy partner who can support you with all your questions regarding career development of science professionals.

In addition to coaching individuals and advising jobseekers during conferences, job markets and recruitment procedures, we offer workshops and lectures for students and young professionals. For this, we use our experience with recruitment procedures and expertise of the job market.

Are you organizing a conference or event, and would you like to include a practical workshop or talk about career development based on best practices?

Are you representing a study association or working on a graduate- or honors-program and looking for input on subjects like employability and career development of MSc-students, PhD-candidates or Postdocs?

Then you are here on the right place!

For special options for PhD-students and Postdocs check our PhD training or book us as a speaker.

Examples of topics for workshops and lectures are:

  • What are your career options and how do you find published and unpublished vacancies?
  • How can you develop a “business” mind-set and be perceived as a high-potential outside academia?
  • What can you do during your studies to increase your opportunities and attractiveness exponentially? In other words, who will always find a job soon?
