Are you curious about switching from academia to industry after your Ph.D.? Do you want to engage in conversations with people that took this challenge? Do you want to find out more hands-on experience about different career pathways in industry? Welcome to our Industry Career Workshop, organized by the Ph.D. representatives at the Max Planck Institute Magdeburg and the SIAM Student Chapter:
Young scientists contemplate a broad range of career prospects throughout their studies and many choose to step from academia to the industry.
This fact motivated us to invite speakers from different companies and fields who will give short talks about their own career pathways and experience! The guests are former MPI doctorates, company specialists and recent graduates with different backgrounds and in different stages of their careers.
The event aims at fostering interesting exchange and discussions that allow the visitors to learn about non-university career paths, opportunities and challenges to be faced after graduate studies, to understand differences between academic and entrepreneurial research and how to pursue a career beyond academia.
