Acing Your Interview

As interviewing strategies change over time and among different career paths, student and early-career AAAS members have stressed the importance of honing their interviewing skills. This course is a natural extension of the course Preparing for a Successful Job Interview, and will guide the learner through a successful interview day by telling you what to expect on the day you interview, reviewing ways in which you can best and most thoroughly prepare for the interview, offering tips on remaining comfortable while on the hot seat, and pulling back the curtain on what’s happening behind the scenes at your target company.
