Friday, September 11, 2020

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Guest Speaker: Greg Yeo, Chief Engineer (Retired), ExxonMobil Chemical

Effective interviewing isn’t a matter of tips and tricks. It’s about principles and preparation. It’s about knowing the company you’re speaking to, knowing what you have to offer and being able to engage in a professional discussion with a potential colleague that confirms you have what is needed to make their team better. Greg has interviewed many hundreds of chemical engineers for jobs in industry and will share insights and approaches you can use to make your job interviews more effective. Although the discussion and examples will center on early-career engineering positions, the principles are applicable to a broad range of disciplines and career stages during any point in the business cycle.
