Professional fields outside of science

Tips for finding suitable job area and employers:


  • Insights into different fields of work and career biographies of doctoral graduates are provided by the following brochures "Perspektiven nach der Promotion. Career paths outside academia: 13 portraits" (German only) and "Employers in conversation" (German only).
  • Ask yourself. Which activities during your doctorate and postdoc period were you best at and where are they needed? Instructing students? Doing research? Programming? Writing? Organizing? Create project plans? Give presentations?
  • Who might be interested in your technical or methodological expertise? Companies? Government agencies?
  • Where do alumni from your field work? Ask them about their experiences.
  • Use your contacts in your field.
