Career planning for individuals

There are many career paths open to doctoral researchers and postdocs. However, many young scientists do not think about their career planning at all or only at a late stage. However, the earlier this process is started, the easier the next career step will be – within or outside of academic research.

You are working on your doctorate or as a postdoc and are not sure how to proceed in your career? You need support or guidance to plan the next steps in your career path, but unfortunately there is currently no suitable offer at your academic institution? We support you in your career planning with various offers:

Coaching “Die Kompetenzenbilanz”

Do you find it difficult to describe your competencies and present them in a way that is suitable for non-university employers? As a certified “Kompetenzenbilanz” coach (engl.: balance of competencies), Dr. Iris Köhler would be happy to support you in creating your personal profile of competencies. The “Kompetenzenbilanz” is a scientifically based procedure to identify competencies that people have acquired based on their professional and non-professional activities, their individual development, their qualifications and their learning experiences.

Please note: Unfortunately I currently cannot accept new private coaching clients due to capacity reasons.
