3) An Inside Look at an Interview (Beyond Academia)
Come watch an actual (mock) interview. Our workshop leader, Mary Johnson, will lead you through the interview process as she interviews a graduate student, for a position outside of academia. Dr. Johnson will lead the audience in a critique of the interview to enable you to determine for yourself what works or doesn’t work without actually being in the hot seat!
