Jan 24, 2022

Speaker(s): John Taborn, PhD, Career Counselor
This event is recommended for: Postbacs; Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows; NIH Staff Scientist/Staff Clinician.

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 go to breakout rooms to practice. 

(due to the interactive nature of this session it will not be recorded…info on interviewing is available via this video: https://youtu.be/JOjeHKuh5Js)
