Questions related to Career Guidance
Any suggestions on how to pivot to policy making?
I saw that there are PhD about it, but I'm not sure to be qualified for them.
How could I increase the chances of being admitted to one without pursuing another master?
I'm finishing a double master in plant sciences and plant biotechnology at Wageningen University & Research. My specialisations are functional plant genomics and phytopathology and entomology, with a minor in nematology and one still to define (around biophysics and omics).
I did a thesis in nematology at the ETH Zurich, one in plant molecular biology at INRAE (French national institute for Agro-Environmental research) and one still to define at SLU (Swedish Agricultural University).
I'd like to pivot toward policy making, but I only have a few courses about transversal skills such as "Negotiation skills", "Communication & Persuasion", "Scientific Writing" etc. and none about policy itself.
I am looking for some project ideas/topics which will also help me get into a career in finance. so i would like to hear from you'll about those trending/live projects that is gonna boost my career. I'm Thanking you all in advance!
I am interested in career guidance of students. Does your University offer this? How does it work? When can the students get career guidance at your institution?
In 2020 I had completed My M.Phil. and due to corona lockdown, I can not get a visa from the embassy so I worked on different research projects and apply for reviewing the research papers. I have reviewed a paper in Polymer and received a certificate of reviewing. I am also looking for P.hD scholarship so please guide me can I add the information of all research projects and Reviewing certificate in my Curriculum Vitae as an experience? Is it beneficial for the Selection process?
Thanks, A lot for your Comment and precious time in advance.
I’m disillusioned by the emphasis on the frantic continuously changing rat race work culture. In my remote job search now, I’m looking for alternative models that fit with people, like myself, who work better in a steady environment. I’m compiling a list of companies that embrace this , or at least tolerate it .
Would you suggest any companies that fit this description?
I would like to hear your opinions regarding sharpening the orientation of my career by focusing on what matters most just looking at the trends and how the world is changing.
Actually, I did Quantity Surveying/Construction Management (cost engineering) and mastering now in Global Logistics.
I want to combine these two into a long term business focusing on Digital World (I love business).
Career guidance can for some be an important element in their choice of career. For some it is tradition og the wishes from parents. For some there was a path of many more or less intended happenings that ended with a academic career. How did you decide to become an academic? (If it was a decision at all). What is the reason you became an academic?
During working on a doctoral work, how do you manage to work on journal articles and get them published while not affecting the intellectual intensity and quality of your major doctoral dissertation?
Hello, I am a doctoral student and looking to explore dissertation area/topic. I think that this place would be a good start.
Please let me know the process to start working on this project?
As a newly admitted PhD student, I would love to hear your experiences or suggestions concerning your doctorate journey. Please feel free to share anything else you feel will be beneficial for new PhD students like me!
Looking forward to your contributions!
In Norway it is a policy to facilitate refugees through career guidance. The aim is to get people in to work as soon as possible. The idea is that this will benefit the refugees and help with faster integration. There are of course many challenges. For you, what are, or would be, key factors in career guidance of refugees newly arrived to your country?
I want to do research that that relates to the building of a web-based curriculum for career guidance that befits high school learners and millennials.
After hundreds of hours of research and preparation, I'm done with the presentation "Rethinking Career Choice: Why 80,000 Hours should give us Pause"! Feedback (positive or negative) is more than appreciated so please let me know what you think!
Dear Colleagues! As far as, from your point of view, it is possible (and justified) to implement the concept of Life Long Learning in a professional academic career by completely withdrawing from a successful scientific (teaching) activity, including with a defended doctoral thesis activity in a professional business activity (possibly with a corresponding new education / degree), not connected in any way with research and teaching activities? Do you know and can you give examples of such personal career development?
Is there strong evidence that choosing a career that fits one's personality or interests is of primary importance in regards to satisfaction or performance ? (For the purpose of this question, personality and interests do NOT include skills or mental ability)
Here is a list of scholarly statements pertaining to the issue
Please add any important studies or points that I missed. Your thoughts and insights are much appreciated
This is not a research-oriented but personally very grave question related to which I am looking forward to hearing your stories, experiences, suggestions, etc.
"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better."
Impressed by the recent article published in the “The Scientist” magazine, I decided to bring the matter of ageism or retirement ages within the scientific community to your attention to discuss it in detail here.
Here is the link of the article: https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/opinion--when-should-scientists-retire--64885
I need to ask two things

2. Is there benefit of master is education if a candidate is having along with PhD in some science subject.? benefits in terms of job or career !
I think that technology could be used by higher education institutes in order to improve connections among university students and companies. Do you know any study which describes university digital platform used for placement and career guidance?
Do you think that can be useful to improve digital networking between university students and firms?
I am looking for good practices for digital university placement! Thank you in advance.
Sometimes the student is forced to choose a scientific specialty he did not want, but sometimes it is controlled by some circumstances such as the academic rate or that the department needs to have a specific specialty or other reasons.
Do you think that the student will invent in the specialty that forced him to prove himself or will he frustrate and not succeed and fail
please guide me, in my research i am comparing two groups on the basis of provision and non provision of career guidance and counselling services.

I'm currently looking for some tests to be applied to students between 14 and 18 years old that are interested in pursuing college studies.
This question was asked to me in a training. The answer will also be interesting for my research on career guidance in education.
In 2012 Hoare, McIlveen, and Hamilton published a plea to use concepts and techniques from ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to Career Development or Guidance. At that moment there were strong arguments, but not yet empirical evidence. What is the situation now? Is there any research that confirms the theoretical arguments? Are there new theoretical insights? Are there projects intended to develop tools for Career Guidance based on ACT? Is anything known about evaluations and/or effects?
With my colleague Albert de Folter I developed a toolkit. It consists of tools, based on or inspired by ACT, for career guidance in schools. We are interested in developing similar tools for adults.

Hello ResearchGate Community,
I really need your help for my Master Thesis. I am writing about dual career considerations in international assignments and want to find out if there are differences between Self-Initiated and Company-Assigned Expatriates.
I want to conduct interviews with dual career couples; six couples that relocated abroad on their own and six couples that went abroad within their organisations. If you have an idea how to find these interviewees or if you personally know someone that suits the criteria please let me know!
If you need more information on the exact interview format or anything else I am happy to provide you with more information.
Thank you in advance for any support you are able to provide!
I'm currently working for my thesis about the impact that has involvement of parents who are have a level of education on adolescents aspiration for the future.
Dual career couples/families are those couples in which each of them is engaged with professional, managerial or administrative work. Research show that dual career issues like children's education are seen as obstacles to international assignment and hinders career development plans of multinationals. My question is, in what ways do these set of people pose a challenge to the organization?
We are designing a European Project on this subject and we are reviewing the state of the art. Thanks in advance.
Research and practice show that generally counsellors must be resilient, have deep knowledge of their field and experience on working with various types of clients implementing different theories. However, as far as I am concerned little is known about specific characteristics, skills, training and attitudes career counsellors should have to be effective at their work with clients, especially within the context of globalization, career uncertainty and complexity. What do you think about these issues according to bibliography and your experience?
Do you believe that personal counseling theory and techniques should be incorporated in career counseling sessions? If yes, why? In addition, in your experience and knowledge should career counseling and personal counseling as a process and a scientific field be mixed or complement one each other due to the multiple intertwined roles people have in their life?
Finding a job in academia is already very tough for new graduates considering the funding limitations and extreme competition. What are the reasons in your opinion? What are the consequences of new graduates leaving academia? What can be done to prevent it?
Currently looking at high level footballers who are going through, or about to experience a career transition within their sport. I am wanting to see what suggestions others have regarding interventions to ease these transitions.
I found, that at the undergraduate and even graduate level, the Institutions where I received my otherwise not bad education did not disclose what kind of careers you can hope to aim for with their diplomas, or what one needs to do and accomplish (other than getting their diplomas) before one can land "their dream job". This kind of information I got mostly by word of mouth, step by step, and by overhearing professors etc - not through any kind of formal class. But maybe my experience is unique and is due to my Eastern-European background (or even specific to the two Universities I received my education from or the time I was educated at) so I would be interested to hear your experiences regarding "career development courses/classes".
I think this should be taught in class just like pubmed and PMC (and other database) searches, ways of using libraries, searching for grant/fellowships/patents and writing proposals, making yourself "visible" plus other basic skills every researcher needs in biomed and probably other fields as well.
In fact, I would like to find out which independent variables among several variables included in the survey have the strongest effects on a dependent variable. Counseling trainees are the participants of this correlational study. Some of the factors examined are counseling experience measured in months, length of practicum measured in hours, length of training in counseling measured in years and scores at a core self-evaluations questionnaire using a Likert type scale. Dependent variables are the total scores and the scores at subscales in two counseling self-efficacy questionnaires (also using Likert type scale).
Would you consider stepwise multiple regression as an appropriate solution? Note that I am interested in the total variance explained as well as the variance explained on the dependent variables from each independent variable separately. However, the sample is going to be quite small (100-150 trainees).
I am a neuroscience PhD student researching developmental channel expression in the neonatal Hippocampus but I have come to realise that what really fascinates me Neural Engineering.
I did a degree in Biochemistry and don't have any formal engineering training.
I was wondering if any one had any advice for getting a job in this area? Any essential skills? Do you know someone who has made a similar move from neuroscience?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
