Interviewing for the Virtual World Workshop

The Second of three Career Series events

Friday April 23; 12:00pm-3:00PM EDT

Sponsored by SPE's Young Professional Committee


Event Technical Lead: Adam Kohn & Greg Treich


This event is for everyone from fresh out of school to looking for a new role! The day will begin with an interviewing tips presentation hosted by David Peterson and Christy Pashkovskiy from Direct Recruiters. As experts in the interview process, David and Christy will share best practices for nailing the interview, whether in person or over video conference.

Following the Interview Best Practices, we will be hosting a panel discussion hosted by three experienced SPE members in the Plastics Field. The panelists will cover what they look for during the interview process and provide tips for ways to stand out during the interview.

After the panel, we will open it up to a live Q&A!
