During an interview, you need to be confident, articulate, and able to quickly think on your feet. Luckily, these are skills that you can practice in advance. This interactive workshop will help you flex the improvisation muscles you need to succeed. Learn how to be an active listener, keep the dialogue going, and impress your interviewer. This workshop is helpful for preparation in both academic and non-academic interview settings.
