In this 3 hour event Tom Brouchoud, Senior Manager – Global Talent Acquisition at SanDisk, and his team of top
recruiters from various Bay Area companies will conduct a hands-on, practical workshop for a limited number of
attendees on how to behave and answer questions in interviews.
The event will begin with a half-hour teaching session. Then attendees will break out into smaller groups, each led
by one recruiter. About five attendees in each group will be allowed to practice their interview skills through 1-
on-1 practice interviews, which their recruiter will conduct. The “candidate” will get personal critiques by their
recruiter, who will provide candid feedback and coaching. Participants will be able to watch, learn and ask
questions about the interviews. The event will close with a short Q & A to clarify how candidates are being “read”
in the market today.
This event is all about the interview and how to succeed in this very important part of the job search process. The
intent of the afternoon is to provide honest, practical and direct feedback. What are you doing right, what are you
doing wrong, and what do you need to do to fix it?
Each attendee who participates as a “candidate” will be asked three questions. The first two will be often asked
questions, which will be e-mailed to all pre-registered participants before the event so everyone can prepare
answers. The third will be unknown to the “candidate”, and may include questions that make no sense, or that
require the candidate to think quickly on their feet, so participants can also work on how to handle these
Remember, this is about honest feedback and hands-on review. Advice given to one will be shared with all. If you
are shy, still show up and listen to what is being said; active participation is encouraged but not required.
Time will be allotted for a limited number of people to answer questions, but room for many more to listen and
learn. Attendees may select either a “candidate” or an “observer” ticket to participate in the workshop.
Whether you’ve had one interview or dozens, you always wonder ‘what did the recruiters and hiring managers think of
me?’ Why did or didn’t I make the cut? How can I improve my odds? Come find out!
