Job Market Interview Training

In the academic job market, a face to face interview is the central process to convince potential employers of your future research prospects. Handling a job interview successfully is not an easy challenge, but the skills needed to present yourself in the best light can be practiced. For this reason, this year the BSE will offer job market interview training in the form of a ‘mock interview’.

We will simulate the interview based on a fictive job vacancy in your field of interest. The “selection committee” will consist of at least two senior researchers in your field, e.g. your supervisor and post docs. Moreover, we have invited a job interview coach who will assist in preparing your talk during the days before the interview and attend the talks to give detailed feedback on your performance after the simulation.
