Workshop description: This will be tailored for students looking to enter the applied setting – for internships and for full-time employment. Heather and Claire have offered this workshop several times to the I/O Master’s students and would like to give the Ph.D. students the opportunity to benefit from their experience as well. They will focus on general best practices and also share their experiences being interviewed and being responsible for selecting students for various roles at their organizations.
