How to Give an Industry Job Talk
- Industry Research Series
A successful job talk for an industry position requires a deep understanding of your fit within the organization and sector, overall. This workshop will help you better define and sell your fit to future employers and colleagues and then address the most common mistakes made when giving job talk presentations. This workshop is a combination of preparation and practice so participants are able to go into their next interview with confidence.
This event is open to the greater Gladstone and UCSF communities.
