Interview Interactive Workshop: The X Factor Game, Interviewing American-Style

2013-09-1710:00 to 11:30 Oceanen, Berzelius väg 3, floor 5, Student and Career Service Office

This workshop is designed for researchers who are located outside of the USA and are interested in working in the United States.

In this workshop you will gain insight into the U.S. Interview process in an interactive, fun and engaging workshop. Learn how to best sell yourself to the U.S. audience, while staying away from potentially illegal questions or area of conversation that may be common in your home country (for example: disclosing date of birth). Practice in a support and confidential group setting so you can demonstrate that you too have the X Factor to be hired in this competitive economic landscape.
