Words of Wisdom – Shai Bernstein

Shai Bernstein from Stanford visited OSU last semester, and offered some advice in his meeting with the Ph.D. students.

  • Carefully document the questions you are asked during your presentations, and the success of your answers.
  • People don’t want to hear a lot of details and motivation in your job interview – they want to hear a simple, clear overview of 2-3 points that you want them to remember.  Your career will succeed along similar lines. The papers that are remembered are clear, powerful, and memorable.  Other papers float around and eventually fall through the cracks.
