Led by Diandra Prescod, Ph.D., this series will provide invaluable insights and practical tips to navigate every stage of the interview process effectively.

Part 2: Practicing with Purpose

  • Engage in triads, where two scholars can practice interview scenarios while one person observes, providing constructive feedback.
  • Role-play various interview situations, allowing you to refine your communication skills and responses.
  • Receive personalized guidance and tips from experienced mentors and peers.
  • Develop confidence in your ability to navigate interviews and leave a lasting impression.

Whether you’re preparing for your first academic job interview or looking to enhance your interviewing skills, this webinar series offers a supportive and interactive environment to help you succeed in your career aspirations. Don’t miss this opportunity to refine your interview techniques and stand out as a candidate in the competitive academic landscape.
