A few days before the event, think about how you might briefly answer the following questions (ref: https://www.bu.edu/lernet/pathways/organizers/panel.html):

  • how did you choose your career ?
  • what did you study to prepare ?
  • what do you actually do at work on a typical day ?
  • have you ever felt discriminated against (e.g. due to gender, race, ethnicity…) and how did you respond ?

  • what advice would you give someone wanting to enter your field ?
  • on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the most), how much do you enjoy your current work?
