This is a special in-between-a-sode that we do periodically, and generally specific to humanitarian work.
Drs. Param Singh (Carnegie Bosch Professor of Business Technologies and Marketing at the David A. Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University) and Rohit Aggarwal (Associate Professor and Ph.D. Coordinator of Information Systems at the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah) have built a site they call Mentor Students, at MentorStudents.org.
The idea is to have a multidisciplinary site where mentors are invited to respond to interview questions to help students and new grads with their career-readiness, provide insights on various job roles (as for me in the humanitarian space) and, how to prepare. I’m honored to have been invited. I also discuss how to get published and a few other areas.
The goal is to be like a TED talk for mentoring.
A couple of technical notes: First off, this podcast version includes hearing the interviewer’s questions. He did not have the best connectivity, so that may sound a bit hinky at first, but you’ll get the gist. As an alternative way to listen, or watch, is to see the YouTube version which omits hearing the interviewer’s cuing question and is edited just for my answers. The YouTube version includes not just the video but also a transcript. YouTube’s transcript is a digital conversion, so it’s not perfect, but a help if need be. And you can also go to MentorStudent.org for their version of my transcript, and view many other interviews as well. I highly recommend it.
