In January 2019 the BGHS will launch the pilot project "non-academic careers". For a three-year term, the project, which is financed as part of the Universities’ strategic budget, supports doctoral researchers with their professional job decisions, nationally and internationally. During the project, a broad network to non-academic partners is going to be established, such as foundations, NGOs, public or economic corporations.
Twelve doctoral researchers from BGHS will have the possibility to gain practical experience in these organizations and will be accompanied by a supervision-program to reflect their experiences. For ten more Graduates there is going to be a Mentoring-Program.
The project stands in line with the recent and past BGHS-events for non-academic career options, which were actively provided in the area of Transferable Skills and Career Service.
