The STAR method

You will likely be asked behavioral questions to learn about your past experiences on your CV. Our interviewers are trained in the STAR method, so the more you are familiar with the method, the better!

What are you looking for?

It’s important to think critically about what you are looking for in your next role. What kind of environment suits you? How do you best partner with peers and managers? What excites you? We want to know!

Be curious

Curiosity is one of our 4 values here at Owkin. We love questions, so please ask as many questions as you’d like! We don’t expect you to know everything. You’re encouraged to be inquisitive and make your interviews conversational.
