Career Fair welcome message

Welcome to the WoCaNet Career Fair!

The organizing team of WoCaNet 2019 is delighted to invite you to explore the wide variety of career paths presented at this year’s Career Fair. Please feel free to search through the descriptions of companies and non-profit organizations that participate and take your chance to meet their representatives in person.

With an increasing number of PhDs and Postdocs leaving academia and science at some point during their career, we believe that it is important to keep an open mind and to acknowledge the different possible career pathways in- and outside of academia available to science graduates.

Hopefully, the spectrum of companies and non-profit organizations present at our Career Fair will provide you with an insightful perspective on job scopes and opportunities in different fields. This might help you in the challenging task of deciding on your personal career path.

We are pleased to present you a variety of international companies from the life science sector and science-related fields, such as the Sartorius Group, Nikon and Fast Track Diagnostics. In addition, non-profit institutions such as the Equal Opportunities Office from the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) and key contacts from the Göttingen Campus Network are present at today’s Career Fair.

Following last year’s success, we are offering a Career Fair Raffle during this year´s symposium. With this, we aim to encourage a productive exchange between participants and representatives. Give it a try: interact with at least three representatives that are present at the Career Fair and collect stamps on the card present in your welcome bag. Some networking tips are included on the card and might help you to start an inspiring discussion. Finally, in addition to gaining from this personal experience, you could win a special prize.

We warmly encourage you to take the opportunity to get in contact with new people and to broaden your personal and professional network at the WoCaNet 2019 Career Fair throughout the day. We hope you will feel inspired by our Career Fair and the different career paths it introduces to you.
