This experiential workshop was designed to help students/postdocs build their careerfrom “inside out”. In other words, participants learn to identify their core motivators in life (values, strengths, skills, and vision) and how to use them to design a career path that is aligned with them. The practical tools we provide will help participants navigate the first essential stages of career planning: gaining a clear vision on what motivates them, what they really want, what they can already count on and developing a concrete action plan to take the first steps in that direction.

The main outcomes of this workshop include:
• Identify what makes you YOU: core values, strengths, skills and more;
• Get the best out of your PhD: understanding what value it brings to your career vision;
• Your PhD+: invest in your interest and talents;
• Your biggest impact in the world: know what environment is right for you;
• Your Work Statement: clarify what gives purpose and energy to your work
• Create your unique career vision
• From vision to a concrete action plan
• What is getting in the way: recognize and overcome self-limiting beliefs and fears;
• Build resilience: turn disappointments/failures into your greatest opportunities.
