Themed workshop

Preparing a successful international mobility project

[0.5 day]

Doctoral candidates and PhD-holders’ jobs are, by essence, international in scope. Thus they are strongly encouraged to seek experience outside their home country. This mobility, through the exposure it creates and the capacities it develops, is an opportunity to accelerate their career development.

However, to ensure that the mobility experience will be fully beneficial, it must be carefully selected and planned. It must take your personality and career expectations into account and make sure that the type of position chosen is a good match for those objectives.

This workshop presents the keys to designing and successfully carrying out an international mobility project consistent with your personality and career objectives.

Companies, research institutes, universities, foundations and other organizations: please contact us to schedule your session.
