Themed workshop

Marketing your skills and your professional research experience

[0.5 day]

During the recruitment process, a PhD-holder has the opportunity to talk about his research experience. To ensure pertinent, easy-to-understand and effective presentations, PhD-holders must first have analysed their own experience in depth.

This process gives candidates the perspective needed to promote their roles and responsibilities in the research projects in which they have been involved and highlight the research outcomes, their impacts, and the skills they developed.

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