Speaker

Dara Wilson-Grant, LCMHC, Director of Postdoctoral Career and Professional Development, UNC-Chapel Hill Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

Are you planning to pursue a non-academic career path? If so, you will need to prepare for a style of interviewing that is quite different than the academic interview process – from the interview structure to the types of questions asked. Special attention will be given to a common HR/industry method of interviewing called behavior-based interviewing.
