Lauren will be presenting to grad students and postdocs at Tufts on "Acing the Industry Interview"
Acing the Industry interview
This talk provides advice for how to succeed during an interview and will cover different interview formats including phone, skype, in person one-on-one and panel settings. This talk provides insight on what hiring managers look for when conducting interviews as well as typical interview questions with examples of responses. Propel will discuss how to prepare for skills based questions (i.e. tell me more about your cell culture experience) as well as “soft skills” questions (i.e. tell me how you work in a team, or how you show initiative). Propel will provide insight on why companies use behavioral interviewing and the important role of culture fit and personality fit in an interview. Propel will also provide advice on research that a candidate can do to make sure they have relevant background information on the company and interviewers and advice on what questions to ask during an interview. Propel will provide guidance relevant for scientific, non-scientific, and consulting interviews.
