Go beyond focusing solely on presenting yourself as the optimal candidate and utilize the interview to determine if an internship/job opportunity is a "Good Fit" for you! In this workshop, you'll gain strategies to clarify your career and educational goals and frame questions to obtain accurate information to assess if a workplace will support those goals, while also learning to recognize potential misalignments.
Define what a "bad fit" or "toxic work environment" is
Outline and clarify your own goals before the interview
Use questions during an interview to determine whether a workplace is in alignment with your goals and values
Articulate strategies and practice language to frame questions
Describe examples of verbal and non-verbal red flags indicating the opportunity might not be a "Good Fit"
Describe factors that can make it difficult to recognize and weigh the potential impact of red flags during and after an interview
