Liebes GSO-Netzwerk,

mal ehrlich: Woher bekommt ihr eigentlich die Karrieretipps, die euch wirklich weiterbringen? Meistens von hilfreichen Kolleg*innen oder guten Mentor*innen. Wir vermitteln diese Art von Hinweisen in unserer virtuellen und kostenfreien Konferenz “To be honest - Career Real Talk for Researchers” (in englischer Sprache).

Am 7. und 8.12. könnt ihr an verschiedenen Themensessions teilnehmen - verpasst auch nicht die Hauptsession zu “Unangenehmen Wahrheiten in der Wissenschaft - und wie man damit umgehen kann”. Wir konnten dafür tolle Gäste gewinnen - schaut mal ins Programm und teilt gerne in euren Netzwerken.

Außerdem stehen die Feiertage an - wenn ihr noch ein Geschenk für euch selbst oder jemand anderen sucht - ab sofort gibt es bei uns Gutscheine für unsere Karriereberatung.

Wir wünschen euch eine hoffentlich geruhsame und angenehme Zeit vor und während der Feiertage und melden uns wieder im neuen Jahr!

Euer GSO-Team


Dear GSO Network,

Let's be honest: Where do you actually get the career tips that really help you get ahead? - Mostly from helpful colleagues or good mentors. We provide this kind of advice in our virtual and free conference "To be honest - Career Real Talk for Researchers" (in English).

On December 7 and 8, you can take part in different sessions - don't miss the main session on "Inconvenient Truths in Academia - and how to deal with it". We were able to gain great guests for this - take a look at the program and feel free to share in your networks.

Also, the holidays are coming up - if you are still looking for a gift for yourself or someone else, we now have vouchers for our career services.

We wish you a hopefully peaceful and enjoyable time before and during the holidays and will be in touch again in the new year!

Your GSO team

PS.: As we gain more non-German speaking subscribers, we will address all of you mainly in English. Some content will remain in German (we will mark those articles accordingly).

Anne shared hands-on advice on networking, visibility, and transferable skills in a guest article for the Joachim Herz Foundation's theme week on promoting researchers on their career paths. The text is in German.
