Towards the end of the first post-doc phase, the junior scientists should think about their future career. We scrutinize this question systematically in small groups in our workshops. We discuss in detail what they have already achieved with regard to a scientific career and what the next steps should be. Furthermore, we analyze which experiences make them interesting for other employers and which competences could possibly be broadened. On this basis, a realistic professional objective is determined and a search strategy developed. We accompany the further development of this process through individual consultations that can even include successful adjustment to a new place of employment.
