With the "Career Seminar" we want to give you more insight into the diversity of career choices avaiable for scientists holding a doctoral degree. We invite young, senior or former scientists from various fields outside the academic research to speak about their jobs and the opportunities offered to people with a scientific background.
After the presentations the audience has the opportunity to discuss with the speakers in an informal atmosphere. While enjoying a snack and drinks they can get a personal impression of the speaker and their company. Saskia, Jennifer, Bela, Timo, Heema and Dragomir are organizing the Career Seminars in 2013.
