About Career Service

Let us talk about your career: Are you where you want to be or are you feeling a bit lost? Do you have a clear career goal but don´t know how to get there? We at Career Service work to educate, inspire and advise you for your future career, inside or outside academia.

Our programs within medical science at Karolinska Institutet prepare you for a broad range of career opportunities. With so many options, the choice can be tough! You could pursue a career in academic research or teaching, specialized in your chosen field. Instead, you might be interested in the many career opportunities in the health care sector, the life science industry, or in other organizations. We want to help you navigate the right path for you.

Career Service offers a varied curriculum of courses, seminars and workshops. We focus on preparing you for the next step, whether it might be networking at a conference or preparing for your first job interview. We also organize a doctoral course called Career Skills for Scientists, as well as internship programmes – one for PhD students and another for postdocs. No matter if you are a bachelor student, master’s student, PhD student or postdoc, you are welcome. We do our best to arrange activities and events that will help you find your path. Remember, it is never too early to start thinking about your next step!

The best way to get Career Service updates is to follow us on Facebook. We also have newsletters in Swedish and English and, together with PhD students and researchers, we run this Career Blog. Stay tuned for career inspiration and career advice!

We at Career Service, Anethe, Emma and Kerstin, are happy to support you.  It is your future – your career!
