    Virtual Interviews 101

    • Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
    • Virtual Interviews 101

      Tuesday, Dec.14, 2021 | noon - 1 p.m. MST

      The hiring landscape is increasingly moving in a digital direction. One area where this is particularly noticeable (and jarring for job-seekers) is in the job interview context.

      Virtual interviews have become more common, with a particular move towards asynchronous video interviews (AVIs). In AVIs, the applicant does not interact with an interviewer, and instead records their responses to questions, which may then be scored by a person or even a computer algorithm.

      This webinar is aimed at increasing understanding of AVIs, what these can look like, and how applicants can better prepare themselves for AVIs as well as other virtual-format interviews.

      Register for the event, here.

    WCHRI Learning Session: How to write a lay abstract

    • Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
    • Researchers are often asked by their institutions and funders to outline the impact of their research for the general public. If you can effectively communicate your abstract in a way the public can understand, more people are likely to read, share, and participate in your research. Writing a lay abstract is also required for most grant applications.

      Join WCHRI for a Learning Session on how to write an effective lay abstract.

      In this interactive workshop, you will:

      • be introduced to common problems and learn to identify issues with example abstracts.
      • work in groups to critically evaluate example abstracts and apply what you have learned.
      • gain the tools to write an effective lay abstract for a grant review panel.

      This session meets the requirements for both the CCHCSP training curriculum and FGSR professional development.

      Facilitated by:

      • Meghan Riddell, assistant professor in the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Physiology

      Date: January 26
      Time: 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m.
      Location: Zoom
