Before the call

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 ?
  • Do you have a life outside your work ? a family ? hobbies ?
  • 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?
  • Do you want to switch your career or field? Why or why not?
