    Many of us do not really know what a job interview is all about, especially those amongst us that transitioned into the PHD journey straight after their Master’s. Furthermore, entry to the PhD track does not always involve a formal job interview, so experience with the more formal version of it is often limited.

    During this network lunch we want to give you a little sneak preview into the job interview process. Annelies, our career coordinator, will guide us through some tools that we can use in preparing for some of the more challenging  job interview questions, such as: ‘What is your greatest professional achievement?’, What is your greatest professional failure?’, ‘What are your strengths and weaknesses?’…. Of course, there will also be time to get your burning questions regarding the job interview answered, and to exchange about the job interview experiences/challenges you have faced so far.
