On October 26, 2017, Angela Karachristos came in to talk to the members of SHRM@QU about interviewing for jobs. Karachristos majored in History in undergrad and has a master’s degree in Industrial Organizational Psychology. She began working as a bank teller and moved up to a training position at the bank and started her long career in HR. She then left the corporate world and started her own HR consulting firm for small businesses. She also works as an adjunct professor for the University of New Haven and Quinnipiac. Karachristos used her HR expertise to teach the members of SHRM about interviewing for your first job after college. She discussed the importance of keeping up with current interview trends and being prepared for behavioral interview questions. She also focused on letting the interviewer get to know you and understanding what skills you offer this company. Karachristos had members come up with their own behavioral interview questions for a job. Karachristos emphasized the importance of preparing for an interview and knowing what skills recruiters are looking for.
