Dreading that first job interview?
Concerned that your last job interview was not so stellar?

Then join your fellow MIT graduate students and postdocs for an exciting workshop on
Interviewing Skills for Scientists and Technical Professionals.

This workshop features a panel of HR experts and scientists working in industry as they comment on a mock interview.

Learn first hand what some of the common questions asked during an interview are, and what makes a good (and a bad) answer. After the mock interview there will be an opportunity to ask questions of the panelists.
