Interviewing Skill Blitz: The STAR Interviewing Technique - A Must-Have Skill for Scientists

Speaker: John Taborn, OITE

About this event

Learn and practice the STAR behavioral interviewing technique. This will help you answer tough questions on interviews like, "Tell me about a time you struggled in lab," or Tell me about your best example of leadership". These questions will be asked during industry, academic jobs, and interviews and interviews for graduate and professional school.

Designed as a quick talk, there will be a 15 minute discussion on the topic...then we will practice in small groups.
