|Topgrading Recruitment Workshop - Kathryn Wainwright|
The Department of Management contributes to Bogazici University students' interview taking techniques through a series of initiatives this May. On Saturday, May 11th, we hosted Ms. Kathryn Wainwright, CEO of The Talent Consultancy, at the North Campus. Ms. Wainwright gave a full day workshop on how top talent can be identified and recruited, and how candidates can demonstrate their "A Player" competencies during interviews as well as upon recruitment. Attendance was high with over 70 participants, and each participant was awarded with a certificate at the end of the workshop.

As the Department of Management, we will be following up this event with a series of mock interviews to prepare our 3rd year, 4th year and MBA students for real life interview experiences and give them feedback about their interview skills. The mock interviews will take place during the week of May 20th, and will be repeated annually from this year on.
