Job Interview Practice Planning

(John Mason) #1

Next meetup will be March 26th 6:30-8:30 at TEK Systems for practice job interviewing. Anyone that wants to help with the planning please chime in here!

Prior discussions here: Meetups in February

If possible, it would be cool for people to walk home with a video of their interview. :video_camera:

Hey guys!

The tentative plan is to have a nacho bar be a networking and staging area and have the following happen:

  • 6:30-6:35 nacho bar + networking
  • 6:40-7:20 interviews (2 private 1-1 interviews, 2 public small group interviews, and 3 resume “speed dating” desks) + simultaneous networking
  • 7:20-8:00 talk on networking and marketing yourself by Emma + simultaneous interviews
  • 8:00-8:10 interviews/talk close to end, ending remarks/announcements
  • 8:10-8:30 nacho bar + networking


People will network with each other at nacho bar until an interviewer announces that he/she is free to take the next person. There will be 4 interviews happening simultaneously and 3 desks open for resume review and advice. Out of the 4 interviews, 2 of them will be private and 2 of them will be small groups.

Action items:

  • We need to tell people to bring their phone if they want to be recorded.
  • We need to tell people to bring their resumes!

Do these plans include volunteers to perform the duties or do we need to staff them? If they include volunteers, that’s amazing, otherwise, we may need to decide if we’ll need to sacrifice anything.

Actually not sure what you mean. :confused:

RV, Skookum, BOA, TEK Systems are all bringing people to help out with the interviewing. Does that answer your question?
