Introducing the Interview Career Guide for Graduate Students and Postdocs!

The Grad Team at Career Services is happy to share our brand new Interview Career Guide for Graduate Students and Postdocs! Complementing our popular Informational Interview Career Guide, this new resource offers advice for anyone actively job searching and preparing for interviews.

We cover all the basics that you need to know when it comes to behavioral job interviews. From discussing the logistics of phone and video interviews to reviewing how to answer standard interview questions, this comprehensive guide will guide you through the preparation needed to ace your next interview. Even if you are not job searching now, feel free to take a look so you can anticipate what interviews might look like down the road and how you might plan your career development before you’re officially on a job search answering interview questions.

If you are actively job hunting and have interviews coming up, please make an appointment with a Career Advisor on Handshake to conduct a mock interview. Graduate students and postdocs find mock interviews enormously helpful as we tailor our mock interview questions to your specific role and industry and provide detailed feedback on the answers you give. It’s also a great opportunity for you to put into practice all the advice you glean from our new Career Guide!
