Career Orientation Workshops & Courses for PhDs in Transition to Industry

Our Workshops Offer for Universities

We offer career orientation workshops for PhDs and postdoctoral researchers. In our courses, we focus on combining knowledge about the job market with self-discovery exercise. We are practical, goal-oriented, and we always take an individual approach to our course participants. Therefore, we conduct aptitude tests, exercises and give away homeworks prepared within Welcome Solutions that help our students determine which future career path is best for them. At the end of the training, the participants better understand their strengths and weaknesses and have a much clearer picture of what “dream job” means for them, and what steps to take to get this job. Furthermore, we always conclude the course with an additional 1-1 meeting. At this meeting, we discuss the personal progress after the course and to prepare a personal strategy for the job application process together with the participant. This individual approach highly accelerates the process of transitioning to industry.Lastly, we always adjust the agenda of the course to the schedule preferred by the client.

Eight-Week Online Intensive Career Development Course for Researchers in Transition to Industry

These online workshops for PhDs and postdoctoral researchers include 2-hour group sessions spanning over a period of 8 weeks.

One-Day On-Site Intensive Career Development Event for Researchers in Transition to Industry — on-site, in the location specified by the client.
These on-site workshops for PhDs and postdoctoral researchers are full-day sprint career events. This fast-paced, high-intensity training is recommended for researchers who need to quickly increase their knowledge about the job market, and start looking for jobs straight away.
Two-Day On-Site Intensive Career Development Event for Researchers in Transition to Industry on-site, in the location specified by the client.
These on-site workshops for PhDs and postdoctoral researchers are full-day sprint career events. As opposed to the one-day version, the two-day session includes an increased amount of discussion and consultancy, more pairwise exercises and group games, as well as more homework. These events are recommended for researchers who have more time to consider various career paths before making decisions on where to go next.

This workshop for PhDs and postdoctoral researchers is an intensive and entertaining group training focused on introducing the job market for PhD graduates.
