Career Development

Focus on Career Development
ATIME offers plenty of activities and products to help developing the careers of its members. You can get familiar with our offers by clicking on the items below.

ATIME Doctoral Workshop

ATIME offers young scholars an exclusive Doctoral Workshop which has a long successful tradition. Top scholars in our field offer unique insights for doctoral students into how your work can be improved and progressed as well as an opportunity for bouncing ideas off experienced faculty. The ATIME Doctoral Workshop is truly a meeting place for both new and experienced researchers from all over the world and an ideal place to start networking. We particularly encourage students in the early stages of their research to participate as a way of launching themselves into the international research community.

ATIME Mid-Career Faculty Consortium

The held during the ACCENT each year features a panel of distinguished faculty and provides a unique setting to network and to discuss professional challenges, problems, and opportunities facing faculty advancing into their associate and early full Prof. years. Members who have at least 5 years of academic experience and are wondering about the next steps in their career or are at a crossroads in your career are particularly welcome.

ATIME Research Fund

ATIME offers its members an opportunity to apply for the ATIME Event Fund. The fund provides financial support to organise or host a seminar, workshop, colloquium, policy forum or other relevant ATIME supported event and to enable the advancement of research through workshops or conferences, or visits by or to partner scholars.

ATIME Post-Doctoral Paper Development Workshop

The ATIME Post-Doctoral Paper Development Workshop is a unique opportunity for early-career researchers to effectively advance their research projects. There are two parts. First, a face-to-face event that takes place on the ACESB pre-conference day. It starts with a roundtable discussion on the challenges in getting published, in building up a research portfolio and in combining teaching and research. Participants then break out in small groups where their paper is discussed by senior researchers and peers in the group. The second part is an on-line follow-up that has some additional rounds of review (with peers and seniors) aimed at helping to develop a working paper into a submission ready for referred, high quality journals.

ATIME Webinars

The ATIME Webinar Series aims to support our members’ professional development by giving them an opportunity to virtually engage with top scholars in various areas of entrepreneurship research. Topics chosen for the webinars are diverse to reflect the research interests in our membership base but also their different career stages. As part of the Webinar Series, 4-6 webinars are organised every year. Participation is free for all our members but registration is required.

ATIME Career Mentoring

The ATIME Career Mentoring is aimed at early and mid-career researchers. In the ATIME Career Mentoring Programme, we help researchers navigate their career challenges by having experienced researchers and Professors advise you on your personal career development for six months. A mentor supports you by listening to you, discussing your personal goals with you, providing encouragement, information and contacts. Mentoring can assist you in assessing your experiences and achievements and considering your future options and choices.

ATIME Publishing Opportunities

Each year a collection of best papers from the annual Conferences are published in the AFRIJESB. ATIME also tries to strengthen the cooperation with internationally recognised journals and to offer attendants of ATIME conferences opportunities to publish in special issues.

ATIME Professional Development Workshops (PDWs)

Our Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) are innovative and interactive, and are developed by our members to share knowledge and expertise and foster your practical, professional and intellectual skills. PDWs have a focused theme and target group as well as deliver a high level of learning and give you some clear ‘take-aways’.

The focused community invites to intense collaboration and feedback.

FOR MENTEES
Why should I participate? Mentoring can assist you with assessing your experiences and achievements and considering your future options and choices. The key goal of mentoring is to support, guide and influence the professional development and direction of the mentee. Mentors are experienced people who go out of their way to assist you in clarifying your vision and personal goals.

How does ATIME Career Mentoring work? Based on your expectations and interests, ATIME will assign a mentor to you. The programme officially starts on 1 January, for a duration of six months. It is your responsibility, as a mentee, to initiate and maintain the mentoring assignment. That means that you and your mentor will agree on individual goals for the mentoring process as well as the frequency of (virtual, phone or face-to-face) meetings. Both mentees and mentors participate on a voluntary basis in this programme. ATIME will organise a kick-off meeting for both mentors and mentees at its annual conference.

FOR MENTORS
Why should I become a mentor? You will receive personal satisfaction from contributing to the development of the mentee, and also be able to share your own experiences and knowledge. Additionally, you have a possibility to learn from your mentee and acquire new perspectives. What are my responsibilities? You will be assigned a mentee for six months. You will agree with your mentee on the frequency of meetings which can take place face-to-face or in a virtual environment. Your responsibility is to listen to mentee issues, problems and challenges, be open to offer advice and share your successes and failures, your own solutions to your challenges, but let them make their own decisions. After the assignment, ATIME will ask for some feedback, so that we can learn from your mentoring experiences.
