At the upcoming Building Careers in Anthropology ConferenceBeth Holland will be putting on a workshop titled: Nailing the Interview. She sat down with Matt Artz to discuss her workshop and what participants could expect to get out of it.

Workshop Abstract

The interview is THE clutch moment in a job search. And when it comes to interviewing, proper preparedness can prevent a painful performance and loss of opportunity.

We will learn how to prepare for upcoming interviews in this workshop, specifically for a UX research position into which many graduates of anthropology programs are being hired. We will crystalize your ‘tell me about yourself’ response and form a clear story to translate academic research into relevant business language.

To help push through those interview jitters, we will role-play practice questions likely to be asked. Our goal is to help you stand out from the competition by maximizing your years of research experience in academia to have the career you want.
