Thank you Hans-Peter Gemperli for introducing Cross-ING's skills tree and the internship matching platform, sharing your insights on how to communicate skills in the industry, and for answering our many questions on this beautiful summer day. 

Thank you Alexis Stavrianidis for sharing your strategies for dealing with setbacks, behind-the-scenes information on applications, and hints for being successful in the end! Thanks also to all participants for the many questions and great discussion, and for your feedback: 'The speaker was excellent. It was very authentic and enjoyable to listen'.

We had fun learning about the peculiarities of the Swiss, developing strategies for making friends, and diving into local history while tasting the famous Swiss Älplermagronen with apple sauce and listening to folk music. Thanks everyone for joining!

Thank you to all participants, the CERN Alumni Relations team and fellow speaker Fatima Soomro for making the first joint PSI-CERN career event a great success! 'I learnt a lot in this session. I think the most important thing was that we can transfer a lot of side-skills into sellable skills' and 'I learned how to understand my personal skills and categorize them and some aspects of how to approach the industry world coming from academia.' are feedbacks that nicely summarize the event.  

What a pleasure to discuss with this group of supervisors on their role of guiding PhDs and postdocs, tools and strategies for their daily business, and their wish to support their students' and postdocs' career development. Thank you for investing your time in our young researchers!
