Mon Feb 10, 2014 workshop “Beyond the obvious: Strategic thought on job applications”

Dear Life Scientists of Lausanne,

Have you ever wondered if,

1. Spending all these long hours in the lab is actually going to be enough to get you to the next step of your career?

2. You can communicate your scientific skills in a simple yet discernible way?

3. Your CV could look any more attractive than a pile of CVs stacked on your potential employer’s desk?

Ms. Monika Clausen has an answer for these questions! Ms. Clausen is an expert on development of transferable skills, specializing particularly in Career transition and training. She is a part of a group called Transition Weavers based in Switzerland. ;

Bio Science Network Lausanne (BSNL) is organizing a 2.5 hour interactive workshop titled “Beyond the obvious: Strategic thought on job applications” with Ms. Clausen where she will share her expertise with motivated students who are seeking advice on career transition, CV writing, application writing and with advice on the most effective ways to initiate a transition in your career path.

The event is scheduled on Monday the 10th of February at 17hrs in Genopode A building of the UNIL Dorigny campus. A prior registration is required and a fee of 15.- CHF per person is charged for participation.

There are 50 spots and they will be filled strictly on a first come first serve basis! To register, please fill in the doodle and a confirmation email with the payment procedure will be sent subsequently soon after the slots are filled.

In the interest of reaching out and helping the most needful students/researchers, preference would be given to the students in their last phase of their PhDs and Post Docs.
