Description

Navigator (f) wanted! Career Orientation for Women in Academia

Careful
planning of a career is most important for achieving attractive career
goals and leading a balanced work-life. However, finding orientation for
such a career plan can be challenging. Especially women feel confronted
with a complex mixture of personal and external interests in work and
life, which need to be incorporated into the process of planning.
Fortunately, the job landscape is diverse and provides a wide range of
opportunities to pursue a fulfilling, individual path, once we know how
to navigate and where to go.This workshop explores the landscape in
which we can orient ourselves in our life and forour next career steps.
It does this with a specific focus on MIN academic careers. In this
workshop

  • we look into ‘navigation’ tools that aid both in orienting and proceeding on our own track in a complex, dynamic environment,

  • we
    survey our unique potential and interest, explore our personal mixture
    of needs and wishes for a vital (work) life, and create a first map for
    career/life planning,

  • we review the variety of
    modern jobs and careers and look into opportunities, requirements,
    working conditions and cultural differences of various careers inside

and
outside academia to get some perspectives on possible future directions
(be itprofessor, R&D manager, entrepreneur or others).
