Employment Status of PhD Holders in Belgium, Authors: Neda Bebiroglu, Baptiste Dethier and Christel Ameryckx

The Observatory of Research and Scientific Careers-F.R.S-FNRS located in Belgium published its first thematic report on the employment status of 2,065 PhD holders who received their doctorate between 2012 and 2018 from the six French-speaking universities of Belgium. PhD holders have a high rate of employment and a low rate of unemployment. However, regardless of their research field, an important proportion of PhD holders stay in the university sector and that a non-negligible proportion work under temporary contracts.

We believe in knowledge-sharing as a competitive advantage and try to achieve this with interactive webinars organised by professionals, for professionals. Our second webinar aimed at professionals who want to set up, improve or reflect on their training offers in transferable skills.

Watch the webinar with Verity Eston and Christian Dumpidak an Transferable Skills Training recorded in November 2018!
