Career Cornerstones: Active Career Building in Academia and Business

Participants learn about career challenges in particular for academic, but also industrial career tracks. They will reflect on their existing competence development, compare the current status with published expections, and think about a personal skill development scheme. Furthermore, the competency knowledge will be used to reflect and challenge the self-presentation in resumes/CVs enabling them to prepare convincing application documents. In addition, the participants analyze their networks and networking activities under consideration of career building strategies.

Content Outline:
Every career is built on a variety of different factors. Despite the conviction that expert recognition is the main part of an academic or industry career, it is now commonly recognized that awareness of career paths, career hurdles, and a convincing self-presentation are musts for career planning activities. In this workshop we discuss open and hidden career elements, reflect about acquired competencies and future challenges, clarify expectations of different markets for self-presentations in application documents, and anticipate professional futures.
