Online: My International Career – Dealing with Pitfalls, Learning from Others

International mobility is an essential component for successful academic careers, but it also places considerable demands on individuals and their private lives.In this workshop, you will meet three young researchers from the Rhine-Main area who have embarked on an international career path and who have successfully mastered the transition from different foreign countries to Germany. They will tell you about their recipes for success, which could be important for your own career, as well as possible hurdles that you may not have thought of yet. Furthermore, you will find out more about the processes involved and learn about the range of support opportunities offered by the three universities in the RMU Alliance, all from the individual points of view of the three young scientists.After the interviews, you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the panelists as well as to the university representatives.
