PhDs/postdocs often have a very limited knowledge about the various interesting and challenging professional opportunities outside academic research and they do not have a clear perception of their own strength and competences relevant for these positions. An overview of different job opportunities other than academic research will direct thoughts to fields of occupation which have been disregarded so far. Various job descriptions will be analyzed along with the required qualifications and skills. Also personal values, motivations and preferences are taken into account to identify the suitable career path in or outside academia.
