Calling all sports enthusiasts, aspiring entrepreneurs, and branding and communications professionals! We’re kicking off another year of engaging Jack Talk events with Sports Industry Management (SIM) alumnus Jorge Hinojosa. Jack Talks are informal events where an SCS grad returns to discuss their inspiring professional and/or personal journeys. Jorge is the General Manager at FootballCorp, a football-centric [i.e. American soccer] company innovating for fans and jersey collectors based in Panama. He is also the founder of Plus Quam Consulting, a consulting firm that helps athletes and sports organizations with their community engagement and CSR initiatives. Jorge currently lives in Mexico and has international experience in the private, public, and diplomatic sectors. Grab a happy hour drink of your choice and kick off the semester by attending this fun and informal networking event.


Flash Mentoring: Mastering Behavioral Interview Questions

Date: Wednesday, January 26
Time: 6:00 - 7:00 pm ET 

RSVP

We’ve all been there. You’re sitting in a job interview that you’ve prepared extensively for, but one style of question stumps you. It’s the classic: “tell me about a time you…” or “tell me about a situation in which….” The room is filled with an awkward silence while you quickly try to think of an experience that perfectly applies to the circumstances being described. 

These are known as behavioral interview questions, and they can be some of the trickiest questions to answer in the moment. Vaibhav Bhagat, a 2017 graduate of the Master’s in Technology Management program and a former Business Intelligence Engineer at Amazon, is a pro at tackling behavioral interview questions and is eager to share his tips and tricks with you. Whether you’re actively job searching or simply want to better equip yourself to answer these types of questions in the future, this event will help you feel more confident and collected as you head into your next interview.
