As part of the curriculum for the Karabots Junior Fellows Program, we are dedicated to helping our students prepare for their future careers, regardless of whether they ultimately find themselves in medical/heathcare fields. To that end, we recently held a session devoted to professionalism.

The Fellows learned the importance of carrying oneself in a professional manner both in their in-person and virtual interactions. Kevin went over some tips to a high-quality résumé and the art of constructing a professionally-worded email. Guest speaker Jon Goff, Associate Director of Fellowship Relations for the College of Physicians of Philadelphia as well as a former CEPI educator, gave them tips on the interview process by conducting one-on-one mock interviews (complete with common interview questions) with several of the students. Jeanene talked about the importance of body language and how people (including potential employers) measure a person’s engagement based on their physical behavior. Observing graduate students from Drexel University were also o hand to share their experiences with the job hunt.
