As a postdoc, you then experience not only that you work a lot and thus have little time for your own self-reflection, but also that you are alone with your questions about your professional future, and that it sometimes even seems disastrous to think out loud about alternatives.
You look back enviously on the structured doctoral training and the opportunity for networking and wish for systematic staff development, which unfortunately is still far from being a matter of course everywhere.
The central module of the KEPOS offer is therefore a workshop to determine your current position. In small groups, we work with the participants to examine their professional development to date, develop their competence profile and illustrate the steps that need to be taken in order to start clear career planning. The workshop results are deepened and consolidated in orientation consultations, so that the participants can draw up a plan of action for themselves. Developing realistic career goals and taking advantage of appropriate continuing education opportunities are part of this planning.
