  • Yourself: Your interests, values and skills
  • Career options: There are many more options than you think and you will be able to change between them
  • Shall I do a postdoc or not?
  • Skill development: Which (hidden) skills do you already have, which can you develop during your time in academia
  • Skills match: What do employers want from you? How to sell yourself?
