BEST Workshop

Berkeley Engineering Stars in Technology (BEST) is a new annual workshop that brings together prominent Berkeley Engineering faculty, alumni and students who aspire to become leaders in technology, for information exchange and mutual inspiration. Thursday, March 10, 10am-4pm, Sutardja Dai Hall. Invited speakers will share their personal experiences as well as their perspectives on challenges and opportunities in technology today, and offer advice to undergraduate and graduate students, particularly for overcoming barriers to professional success for underrepresented minorities. The goals of BEST are to: 1) increase the visibility of diverse alumni and their contributions, 2) inspire the next generation of engineering leaders, 3) increase awareness of issues (and solutions) for underrepresented minorities, and 4) foster support for underrepresented minority students in engineering. For more information visit their website.

Mock Interviews For Engineering/Technical Students

With Spring recruiting in full gear, we know practice interviews can be quite useful to prepare for first or second round interviews in the technical and engineering fields, for both full-time jobs and summer internships.

You can expect to practice traditional and behavioral questions*, and potentially industry-specific questions, depending on your career goals. For those interested in consulting, there is no time to do case interviews or brain teasers, though the consultant can help you prep for them.

*The consultant is not able to work on technical interview questions with you. For reference, we recommend referring to books such as Cracking the Coding Interview.

To make the most of your session, review our interviewing resources online 

Also, prepare your answers to the most common questions: Tell me about yourself/Walk me through your resume, Why do you want this job, and Why our company. (Remember to speak to the employer's needs, focusing on the talents and skills you offer, not just want you'll get from the job.)

You may schedule only ONE appointment per semester. These interviews will run Feb. 1 - March 11, 2016

The Mock Interviews for Engineering and Technical Undergraduate and Graduate Students service is available to students in the Colleges of Engineering and Chemistry as well as to students from other majors such as Computer Science and Statistics in the College of Letters & Science who are interested in technical careers and internships.

How to Schedule a Mock Interview

1. Log in to Callisto at  http://callisto.berkeley.edu  and select "Callisto Search" from the Shortcuts menu, and do a keyword search for listing #909888 (or enter: Spring Mock Interviews for Engrg. & Tech. Students)

2. After uploading a resume (please list the types of jobs you are recruiting for in the objective section of your resume) , select View/Apply and choose a date and time that works with your schedule.

3. The Callisto system will confirm your mock interview appointment via email, however, please cancel your appointment 48 hours in advance if necessary, so other candidates can utilize the service.
