Transferable Skills (offline workshop)


As a PhD student or postdoc who enters the job market, you should know your own skills and should be able to communicate them.

That is difficult. Most scientists can present their research and their practical skills very well, but they are less aware of the social, communication and directing skills they have.

In this 3 hour workshop, Thierry Delatte from Hertz will teach you which skills you possess that can be seen as your ‘Transferable Skills’: skills you can use in any situation and which make you valuable for the job market. With use of some practical exercises this workshop will make sure you get a better view on your own skills. In addition, you will be able to present them and support them with good examples during e.g. a job interview.

There are no fees, and we will end the workshop with a nice lunch.

We hope to see you there!
