Mock Interviews for Students & Postdocs

ASMS is Accepting Applications for 'Mock Interviewer / Experts'

Deadline to apply is September 30. A mock job posting of your choosing is part of the application process. Read more about the program and timeline on this page. Thank you!


The Basics  |  How The Program Works

ASMS 'experts', selected by the Education Committee to represent a variety of career sectors, will post mock job postings on this page. Each mock job posting will have an online application form for eligible students or postdocs to complete.

Experts will review applications submitted for their mock job posting and select five applicants to participate in a mock interview time-slot.

Prior to the mock interviews, the experts will review, edit, and return CV (submitted as part of the online application) to the selected candidates.

Experts and the five selected candidates will meet in a Zoom meeting.

  • Selected applicants will do a 5-minute pitch of their skills to the group.
  • After each 5-minute presentation, the expert will ask the student follow up questions in the group setting.
