Employer-Led Work­shop: Inter­view Tips (pre­sented by Google)

Wednes­day, Octo­ber 22nd

12:30–1:20pm at the Career Cen­ter (134 Mary Gates Hall)

The most excit­ing part of look­ing for a job? Search­ing, find­ing and apply­ing. The most nerve-racking part? Inter­view­ing. But it doesn’t have to be this way. This course guides stu­dents through exer­cises to help them pre­pare for an inter­view – both in-person and vir­tu­ally. It also out­lines tips and tricks that the Google Uni­ver­sity Pro­grams team has devel­oped over the years.

No pre-registration or RSVP is required for these work­shops, and space will be avail­able on a first-come, first-served basis.
