Welcome to your Career Journey


Embarking on a career in- and outside of academia can be both exhilarating and daunting. At the ETH Career Center, we recognize the unique challenges (doctoral) students face as they navigate this transition. That's why we are thrilled to introduce our newest initiative: the Career Journey Series.

The Career Journey Series is designed to provide comprehensive support to (doctoral) students as they transition from academia into various industries and career paths. Through a carefully curated sequence of events and resources, we guide participants through four essential phases: Analysis, Exploration, Focusing, and Application. These phases are all part of our Career Management Cycle used in our application guide which you can download using the button on your right.

At the heart of the Career Journey Series is our commitment to supporting students at every step of their career transition. Whether you're a still figuring out what your interests and values are or you're already exploring opportunities, join us as we set sail on this career journey together.

Unlock your potential, broaden your horizons, and take the first step towards a fulfilling career beyond your studies with the Career Journey Series.
