The Art of the Interview:Skills & drills to prepare for and un-bias the interviewing process

As an interviewer, you hold all the cards. But how do you make sure that you’re interviewing in a fair and unbiased way to discover great talent that is truly additive to your team?

As an interviewee, you update your resume and think about what questions you might get asked, but how should you best prepare? And have you ever actually practiced interviewing?

Join us for a combo event in which we focus on both sides of the interview table, and teach skills and run drills for success-no matter your role.

Come prepared with a one-minute answer to the questions

  • “Tell me about yourself”

  • “What are some of your strengths or areas of weakness?

At registration, you’ll let us know if you’d prefer to be an Interviewer or an Interviewee
