  • 25.10.2018: "Social Media"

    For scientists, social media can be a fantastic medium for promoting their work, networking with colleagues and publicly engaging in debates. However, social media also poses challenging questions about how to engage and present yourself professionally or whether digital exposure can also do harm. Will it eventually become compulsive in order to pursue an academic career?
    The event was organized by the Peer Mentoring Group Career Elixier in cooperation with Graduate Campus. The event took place in English.
