Training for the Job
Developing professional skills enables graduate students to achieve a higher level of competitive expertise essential for a career not only in academia, but also in industry and in the public sector. Acquiring leadership skills and managerial responsibilities, business administration and effective communication skills will contribute towards success as a constructive leader.
The Dahlem Research Mentoring Program DREAM aims to support female doctoral candidates in their academic career, but also show alternatives at an early stage.Mentoring involves building a relationship in which a mentor and a mentee jointly explore and enhance the mentee's abilities and skills and discuss career-related issues. The one-year program is complemented by workshops for mentees and mentors and networking events.
Our CAREER TALKS lecture series complement these events. We invite speakers from a wide range of professions to provide insight into their professional life.
