Corporate Academy

My Future Career (BWC: Be, Want, Can training course, part of the Career Perspectives Series)

Introduction

  • Are you working on a PhD research project?
  • Do you want to continue as a researcher or would you rather find a job outside academia?
  • In which direction do you want to develop your talents?

Aim

This training course is an opportunity to discover your personal qualities and skills, to get an idea of your ideal work situation and to create a relevant search profile. At the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of your qualities and your personality. You will also have gained insight into the opportunities on the job market, enabling you to shape your career by compiling a step-by-step plan.

Target group

PhD students (in the third or fourth year).

Competences

Self-reflection, initiative, ability to listen, result-orientation, planning and organizing.

Content

It is impossible to contemplate the next step in your career (either within or outside academia) without considering ‘the psychology of the choice process’. In this course, you will formulate your career question, search for solutions, weigh up the arguments and make choices concerning your career. Although you probably won’t have made a firm decision by Day 3, you will have made a start on the process!
The course is spread across two-and-a-half days, with a few weeks between the sessions. The course material is in English.

Quote

Aurora Signorazzi two months later about the course:

"It made me really focus on what are my strengths and goals, and how to best convey that also during an interview.

Having done this for the course made me much more aware of my core qualities and pitfalls, and such awareness was appreciated in recent interviews that I had, so thank you and keep up the good work!"
