Career Path Seminar

12–16 April (online) | 5–7 November (online)

What is the Career Path Seminar?

The Career Path Seminar is a way to get you thinking about your first career—or your next career change. Developed in collaboration with a psychologist, a career consultant and a communication expert, the five modules walk you through self-reflection tools like writing a negative CV, self-care, and visualisations of your future. Through interactive sessions and close teamwork, you will examine stereotypes and myths, examine how you define success and how to cope with failure, and hear from guest speakers on changing sectors. You will come away with an action plan for how to start working towards your dream career.

The April Career Path Seminar will take place 12–16 April, 18.00–21.00 CET. Applications are closed, but try one of our other events or check back for the next Career Path Seminar!
