“The Vision for my Future Leaders Fellowship” followed by questions from panel members.
Presentation covers goals and establishing leadership.
Panels make decisions against criteria NOT personality or appearance e.g. how confident/nervous you are or what you are wearing etc. Understand the criteria as Qs directly/indirectly link to them.
Re-read your application. You will know the detail of your proposal better than anyone else - are you able to explain it? Why are you doing X? Why are you working with Y? Why did you choose to do Z? Has anything changed since application?
Think about why you applied for a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship. What does this scheme allow you to do that other schemes/routes don’t? What are the benefits of your fellowship to you, your team or collaborators, and the wider community/world?
Ask friends/colleagues to do mock interviews with you.
Sit and chat to people about your work and get them to ask you questions.
Talk to people about interviews and read about other people’s experiences.
#ukriflf interview panels want you to succeed, they’ll be supportive and try and make you comfortable and at ease. The people on panels know what it is like to be on the other side of the interview panel. They are not looking to trip you up.
This is not an exhaustive list, I’ll have forgotten something. Everyone has a different experience with interviews.
I’m hoping people might reply with additional ideas/links that might be useful.
thanks so much.
