On October 5th, we had the opportunity and the honor of presenting our company at the DESY research center as part of the DOIT job seminar.

DOIT is a volunteer team of Doctoral Researchers (DRs), that represents the interests of the DRs at the Bahrenfeld campus and the Faculty of Physics at the University of Hamburg. The DOIT organizes the recurring job seminar series, in which former doctoral students provide insights into their current work and their path after completing their doctorate. This seminar series is aimed at all young scientists, who want to get an overview of the diverse career opportunities for physicists outside of science. Former DESY doctoral students and external physicists talk about their experiences in “real” life, i.e. how they applied for their current position and what they are doing now.

Our broad network of candidates and our long-standing cooperation with research institutes have enabled us to be the first company, that was allowed to introduce itself and give insights into the labor market from the perspective of a market leader in the field of specialized recruiting services. We really enjoyed talking to the graduates and sharing our expertise. Within this framework, we promote direct contact with future top performers and provide advice.

The lively participation in the webinar and the interesting concluding Q&A session with the scientists confirmed what we live by – the candidates need extensive advice and individual support for their career planning. Especially, after completing the doctoral thesis and at the beginning of the application process, it is still unclear for many, how they can identify the right position for themselves, describe their experience and convince in a possible job interview.

As a competent partner with many years of expertise on your side, we advise you individually and create the further application process together. We would be happy to support you in your own career planning! Contact us any time.
