As you plan your search for an internship or new job, do you feel ready to speak about your skills and qualifications to employers? Join Graduate Student Life and University Career Services for a workshop on behavioral interviewing strategies. Employers widely use behavioral interview questions to assess candidates’ competencies and behaviors by asking about past performance. At this workshop, learn how to communicate your skills, qualifications, and experiences for maximum impact during these types of interviews. Ralph Lattanzio, affiliate professor and Employer-in-Residence with Career Services at George Mason University and former Global Director of Recruiting for ExxonMobil, will explain how behavioral event interviewing works, how to understand what employers are really asking, and how to respond, as well as give all participants opportunity to practice the strategies.
