A job interview does not have to be daunting once you know what to expect. Join TAP-Chicago for a free mock interview session with experienced professionals from a variety of fields including accounting, computer science, law, and marketing. Give yourself the opportunity to interview with an experienced professional from your intended career who can provide you with insider knowledge of what to expect and how to best present yourself for your ideal job.
Interviewers and interviewees will be paired up according to the background and interest. The event will be two-fold: first, recruiters will help interviewees prepare for the mock interview and then the interviewers will conduct the mock interview. After the mock interview session, there will be a networking session for everyone at the event.
We encourage you to register soon as space is limited. Mock interviews will be scheduled based on availability, first-come, first serve basis.

WHO IS ARTHUR CHU?
A FILM BY: YU GU, SCOTT DRUCKER

Run Time: 90 minutes (Check out the trailer below)!
Arthur Chu hacked Jeopardy! and won big. Now he’s using his newfound celebrity to battle dark forces on the internet as a blogger and cultural pundit. Raw, unfiltered and poignant, we follow Arthur as he realizes he can only create positive change in the world if he first heals his own wounds by reconciling with his estranged family.
Featuring a Q&A with Scott J. Drucker and Yu Gu, moderated by Chicago-based journalist, Peter C. Baker, a freelance journalist and contributing editor at Pacific Standard magazine. In 2015, he profiled Arthur Chu, and in the years since has written extensively about masculinity and the Internet for New York Times Magazine and Elle. He is a 2017-2018 Carter Center Fellow in Mental Health Journalism.
