National PhD Day 2015: Enhance your career


Enhance your career

Perusing a career in science is not always easy. Only 20% of all PhD candidates will keep working at an university, and only a fraction of that will eventually make it to the academic top and become a professor. However, for those who want to work outside academia, it can be difficult to show the added value of a PhD. Regardless of what career you aspire, it is important for PhD candidates to start thinking about career opportunities and needed skills in an early stage. That’s why the theme of the National PhD Day 2015 is “Enhance your career!”

The day will consist of interactive workshops, an information market and inspiring talks by plenary speakers. On top of that, we will be awarding the ‘Best Supervisor of the Year Award’. Nominations are still open! Of course, we will end the day with networking drinks. PhD candidates from all fields of study are invited to join the second National PhD Day in Delft. The National PhD Day is organized by the PhD Candidate Network of The Netherlands (PNN), the national organization that represents the interests of PhD candidates in The Netherlands.
