- Do you find it difficult to talk about your experiences in a way that shows you’re confident in your abilities without sounding like you’re bragging or overstating them?
- Do you find it difficult to give yourself enough credit for the experiences you’ve had (that those things actually do “count” and should be highlighted at the appropriate time)?
- These are issues that many students struggle with as they prepare for interviews.
- If these are issues that concern you, then plan on attending the Interview Prep Workshop next Thursday, April 21!
The workshop will feature a brief introduction on tips on how a law student can effectively promote his or her unique strengths in an interview situation. The students will then engage in a 45-minute small-group exercise in which students will respond to a prompt, receive feedback from the small group on the effectiveness of his or her presentation, and then continue to refine his or her presentation. The goal of the exercise is to help students become more confident in speaking about themselves in an engaging way and to step into the spotlight when the moment is right.
Alumni volunteers will work with students. This workshop will be facilitated by Guest Lecturer Alison Sulentic, a solo practitioner who formerly served as member of the full-time faculty from 1995-2007.
The workshop will be held on Thursday, April 21, from 4:30-6:00 p.m. in Room 414 of the Law School.
Space is limited to the first 20 students to RSVP on DuqLawConnect – Events tab.
Professional attire is required. Refreshments provided.
