Get career advice from a career coach

Sometimes you are feeling stuck in your career. What can you do if you don't know what career path to choose? Of course our career tools can help you out, but getting advice from a career coach might be the encouragement you need.

Go to your institution's career center

Are you an employee of a Dutch knowledge institution? Always check if your employer has a career center and ask one of the career coaches to help you. Many Dutch universities have a career center to support their staff.

Ask our career coach

You can also ask our career coach Iris Huisman for advice. She is specialized in coaching scientists, mostly PhDs and postdocs, but associate professors and professors are also part of her clientele.ย She started her own practice, Just You Coaching in 2012 because of her distinct feeling that coaching for scientists was needed.

She has coached many scientists with different questions and cases, in different stages of their careers and with different views on the future regarding staying in academia of search for a position outside. Next to her own practice she is currently working as a work coach at Utrecht University and as a digital career coach for AcademicTransfer.
