Mock Interviews For Graduate Students and Postdocs

 Wednesday, April 30, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., in Ida Noyes Hall, Cloister Club

Interview your friends! Eat pizza!

At Mock Interviews for Graduate Students and Postdocs, you will interview each other briefly and learn from UChicago graduate alums and staff who have careers in a variety of fields. We hope that this fun night will give everyone (1) some experience in preparing for interviews and (2) some interviewing practice in an informal setting before interviewing for jobs outside of academia. And: pizza and soft drinks!

To prepare for this event and to simulate the interview preparation process: everyone should think about or even practice answers to the following set of standard interview questions in advance:

  • Why do you want this job?
  • What skills will you bring to this position and this field?
  • What draws you to this type of work?
  • Tell us about your academic work and how it would apply in this field.
  • What kinds of supervisory experiences do you have?
  • Describe a time you had a conflict and how it was resolved.
  • Where do you see yourself in ten years in this field?
  • Why aren’t you staying in academia?
  • Describe a complex task you worked on as a member of a team and how you and the team negotiated the complexities of the task and completed it.
  • Do you have any questions for us?


Students who have questions or need assistance should contact Kalee Ludeks at kalee@uchicago.edu. We look forward to seeing you at this constructive and fun event!
