Skills - what are you skilled at?
Many of our skills are silent and internalized expertise. Being able to describe your own skills can help you broaden your career perspectives and make a strategic plan to pursue your dream career.

WHY: Do you know what you are skilled at? And what you are less skilled at? Which skills you love to use and which you try to avoid using? Being able to reflect upon and describe what you are (less) skilled at makes it easier to choose a career aligned with what you really love doing and gives you the feeling of mastery. Describing your own skills and being able to translate them from academic to non-academic talk can also help you get a broader prospect of your career opportunities (workshop 5 - career development plan).
WHAT: We will provide you with tools that can help you reflect on the good verbs that describe you and your skills and that can be used when writing a CV, application, in job interviews or only in your own head for building your own confidence.
HOW: In the workshop you will get dedicated time for self-reflection on your own skills in addition to working with your peers to brainstorm which skills are required in academia and other sectors, and how to develop your skills.
