As a PhD student, you are registered in Dimona as an employee, so you can apply for career assistance vouchers which can be used for eight hours of career advice at a recognised career centre. The conditions for this are:
- you live in Flanders or Brussels.
- you are currently working as a full-time or part-time employee, or are self-employed.
- in the last two years, you’ve worked as an employee or self-employed for a minimum of one year.
- you have not had any career guidance sessions in the last six years.
Detailed information is available on the website of the VDAB.
The Antwerp Doctoral School also organises interesting courses (for example ‘Application techniques’, ‘Leadership and teamwork’, etc.). See what’s on offer here.
