Whether conducted in-person, virtually, or via phone, interviews are an opportunity to tell your story while clearly conveying your skills, interest and overall fit for a specific position and organization. In this workshop, you will learn useful strategies to prepare strong responses and also practice answering some of the most common behavioral-style interview questions. You do not need to have an upcoming interview to attend this workshop.

Stefan Waldschmidt, PhD

This session will feature alumnus Stefan Waldschmidt, who finished their PhD in English in 2017. Their research was focused on how utilitarianism shaped nineteenth-century narratives about community and meaning. After graduating, Stefan worked as a manager at CollegeVine, a data-driven startup offering college admissions services. Stefan is currently the College Counselor at Carolina Friends School, an independent Quaker School in Durham, North Carolina.

A2i is a program at Duke focused on helping humanities and social science PhD students find, apply for, and secure employment outside of academia. While the content, industry partners, and guest presenters will be tailored for humanities and social science doctoral candidates, other graduate and professional students from Duke are welcome to attend. See the complete lineup of fall 2022 A2i events on the Duke Career Center website.
