Alternatives to an academic career

Not every postdoc stays at an institute of higher education or research institute. There are many ways to use your knowledge and abilities in other occupational fields. We can help you to map out ways to promote your talents and interests in job applications or to pursue new business concepts.

In the qualification programme of the Graduate Academy, you can find a number of workshops on the topic of "career planning and applications," including for a transition into a career outside of academia. You can discuss these ideas in an individual postdoc consultation. If you would like to found your own company or work on a freelance basis, the founder service (Gründerservice) of the FSU can help you.
