isw has been facilitating the workshop “PhD Career Focus, an interactive seminar and workshop on how to find the best job fit” the past four years. This three-day workshop has been programmed as part of an academic project on transferable skills. The workshop consists of several modules that can be organized separately as well: Succesfull Networking, How to Prepare for a Job Application, How to write a Powerful CV. All modules can be tailored to a specific target group: PhD's, Post Doc's, Bachelor or Master students.
The intention of the workshop is to increase the awareness of participants about their personality, competences, values, and their transferability in several sectors. The workshop gives them more insight in their motivation, interests and priorities in life in general and in their professional life in particular.
