Say you’re a woman, and  you’re interviewing for a job in a traditionally male-dominated field like engineering. What qualities about yourself should you highlight in your interview? A new MSU study offers some ideas.

Current State’s Melissa Benmark spoke with one of study’s co-authors, Ann Marie Ryan. She’s a professor of organizational psychology at MSU.
