For this Transferable Skills Seminar, “Empowering Self Introduction to cultivate careers of researchers”, we are looking forward to receiving applications from students who can actively participate in the work during the seminar.

■ Outline
Revealing mystery in the world is so fascinating and no one can stop researchers’ curiosity. Researchers’ passion to approach unsolved issues and to develop creative and unique solutions has the potential to change the world in and out of the lab. For those who want to cultivate a passionate and inspiring career, it is necessary to be understood who you are and what you want to achieve by future counter partners including people in industry, academics and collaborators. This seminar will give you the opportunity to think about what is a powerful self introduction for researchers that leads your career in both academic and industrial scenes.
This workshop involves group work. Please attend with camera and microphone on and participate actively.
