Objectives and Content

This workshop is part of the new Dahlem Research School Podcast Series Season 1.


Academia or Industry? Where am I going? 


In this workshop, we're going to develop a set of tools which can help you navigate the choice between staying in academia or changing into a different area. If you’ve already decided to leave academia, you can use this workshop to develop a sense of direction and an idea of where you’d like to go next.

This session will help you answer the following questions:

What am I motivated by? What interests me? What kind of work might be meaningful to me? 

How can I reflect on my past experiences in a way that will help me better understand where I want to go in the future? 

What other tools and strategies exist that might help me feel more confident about my career path? 


Sign up here via Lounjee and find more information in the attached PDF.
