Beschreibung

Are you a PhD researcher or Postdoc looking to move to industry in the next 6-9 months? Your CV looks too academic? You are not being invited for interview? You are not getting the right job offer?

For your successful positioning on the labor market we offer the following:

  1. Structuring and writing of your CV to maximize impact with readers in industry
  2. Skills gap analysis for positions in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence
  3. Ready-to-go strategy for moving on the labor market

The workshop is limited to 12 participants.

Target Participants

Any Ph.D. seeking opportunities in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. Typically, you will have a STEM background - with e.g. statistics, algebra, econometrics – and some experience with relevant programming languages like Python, R or C++.

Proof-of-concept

The workshop concept is based on

  1. >500 interviews of aspiring Data Scientists, >100 re-written CVs, and co-operation with hiring managers & recruiters in placing candidates
  2. Numerous requests to help with CV writing, emerging from the workshop series ‘Science to Data Science'
  3. A trial run of the essential elements with the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (Bonn)

The process

The workshop includes instructions on your CV structure, personal feedback on a first draft, skills gap analysis for employment, personal feedback on a final draft:

  • 1 week before the workshop you receive instructions on how to provide a new CV
  • Your draft is due 48 hours before the workshop.
  • During the workshop, personalized feedback is offered and time made to arrive at a final CV structure.
  • In the week after, your personal CV is finalized for submission to companies and recruiters of your choice.
