Do you dread it when people say, “So, tell me about yourself?” We will demystify this ubiquitous question – and many others that show up in interviews! Learn what employers are listening for, and why they ask the questions they do, and how to answer effectively. We help you consider how to articulate the value you offer from your experiences in and beyond academia. 

The Interview Lab is an interactive meetup for you to learn about and practice interviewing techniques for jobs outside of academia. Learn what employers are looking for in an interview and how to handle a variety of behavioral questions. We’ll discuss and practice how to market the many skills and experiences you’ve gained during your graduate studies or postdoc and you will work with peers to develop the questions you want to ask. Note: this is a general workshop on behavioral fit interviewing, and will not cover specific interview types like technical and case interviews. Zoom link will be sent the day before the workshop.
