Career Center Cancellation Policies

Please note that our one-one-one coaching sessions, as well as our workshops are in demand. In order to maximize availability for all members of our target groups (doctoral researchers and postdocs), please adhere to our cancellation policies:


One-on-One Coaching Cancellation Policy

If you fail to keep an appointment unexcused (i.e. do not show up, arrive more than 15 minutes late), you cannot book another appointment for four weeks. Please call us or write an email ( at least one business day in advance.


Workshop Participation Cancellation Policy

Many of our workshops, especially those related to CV and Cover Letter Writing, are in extremely high demand, with workshops being fully booked and waiting lists filling up within an hour of opening registration. Therefore, it is only fair to your peers, that you cancel your participation in the workshop via email (, at least one business day prior to the workshop taking place. This way, people on the waiting list will have a chance to take part instead and the spot is not wasted. Should you fail to do so, you will not be able to partake in workshops offered by the Career Center for eight weeks.

This is also valid for workshops consisting of more than one part (i.e. our 2-part CV Workshop), where participation in both (all) parts is mandatory upon registration. Should you not show up unexcused for the second (remaining) part(s), you will also not be allowed to participate in upcoming Career Center workshops for the following eight weeks.
