Mock Interviews

What do you see yourself doing in ten years? Why do you want to be a doctor?  What are your weaknesses? What is the greatest obstacle that you have had to overcome? If you could be any cell in the human body what would you be and why?  BAHS seniors and graduate students donned their finest apparel and tackled these questions as part of Mock Interviews, an event hosted by Tri-Beta Biology Honor Society on November 14, 2014.  Kerri Horwath, Kurt Knepley, Jessica Willis, Adam Kulp, Jacob Morton, Brendon Juengst, and Blake Shoemaker, pictured above, participated in individual and group interviews to prepare for future employment and admission to professional and graduate programs. Afterwards, students and faculty interviewers met to discuss the interviews  over snacks. While a bit nerve-racking, all participants agreed that it was a valuable experience and provided good preparation for the real event. Thanks to Jacob Morton for organizing the event and to the following faculty interviewers for graciously donating their time and advice: Drs. Coleman,  Kipe-Nolt, Nolt, Schwindinger, Surmacz, Venditti, Williams, and Wood.
