SILS career lunch
SILS Career Lunches aim to expose you to a variety of different career paths and stimulate you to start your own career development. The concept? 1,5 hours around lunchtime to let yourself be inspired by people who faced the same difficult decisions and fears about the future and eventually found the right path.
For every event, we invite 3-4 guests with a Life Science PhD to talk about their specific career choices and experiences. In small groups, you have the opportunity to ask questions about those choices, ranging from the decision-making process in the beginning to specific job requirements or simple descriptions of day-to-day tasks. All of that while enjoying a free lunch!
Joining a Career Lunch is not about finding your dream job right now. But it will get you started with networking and provide you with more insights to make an informed decision in the future.
Upcoming Career Lunch dates
While we usually invite guests with positions outside of academia to give you a taste of ‘what else is out there’, we are staying closer to home for the upcoming 8th edition: What is one’s motivation to be an academic scientist? What does it take? Do I have to be sure about this right from the start or is doubting normal?
