This session gives students the opportunity to hear what interviewers say in team meetings behind closed doors during interview week. This year, these conversations will be taking place in a virtual boardroom, but knowing what stands out to interviewers (both positive and negative) will help students land higher in their rankings. Participants will also learn about what behaviour is expected of the interviewers, which can have an impact on how students rank firms on offer day.
