Workshop: Career Planning for Academics. Personal Brand, Professional Mission

PhD's and PostDocs seeking to continue their career consistently indicate that one of the biggest issues they face is the need to communicate better who they are themselves, what they stand for, and what they are excited about in their field. This workshop trains them to do that by identifying their core qualities and developing a personal, professional mission statement in relation to their natural talents.


Know what you are about. You will leave the workshop with a set of personally fitting talents illustrated with real life examples, and a well-defined, actionable professional mission statement to keep your focus and effectively pitch yourself in a professional setting.

Date: February 7 (Friday), 2014
Location: EUR Campus Woudestein, T3-38
Time: 13:30 – 16.30
Course fee: € 30,- (including drinks afterwards)
