Job Interviews is one of several Futures workbooks which help students choose and prepare for their careers. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio. Interviews are still the most commonly used method for assessing a person’s suitability for a job. In the UK 99 per cent of employers use selection interviews to recruit
Susan Middleton: "Spineless: Portraits of Marine Invertebrates"
Spineless: Portraits of Marine Invertebrates, The Backbone of Life (Abrams, November 2014) by pioneering photographer Susan Middleton. Marine invertebrates make up more than 98% of the known animal species in the ocean, yet they remain elusive to most of us.

As timely as it is visually stunning, her portraiture spotlights a vulnerable population, marine inve
There is no narration, but the video does show how to create the form for using Cornell note taking. It gives ideas about taking these notes using a computer. This would be useful as an introduction if the students already understand the basics of how to use the Cornell method.
Israel: the Arab spring, domestic politics and the future of the Arab-Israeli peace process [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr Ahron Bregman | The Arab spring has put on hold the possibility of reaching peace between Israel and Syria, thus leaving the Israeli-Palestinian peace track as the only game in town. At the same time, international efforts, led by US Secretary of State John Kerry to help Israelis and Palestinians negotiate their differences are unlikely to end the occupation and deliver a Palestinian state. The latter could only be achieved, as Ahron Bregman will argue, if three elements come toge

Injury rates reported at America's poultry plants have dropped dramatically in recent years, and so have workplace safety inspections. Are regulators rewarding companies for inaccurate reporting of injuries? Bill Moyers Journal and Expose: America's Investigative Reports go inside America's poultry industry, which employs almost a quarter million workers nationwide, to show the reality of working conditions and to investigate how official statistics showing a drop in workplace injuries may hav

8.3 Line spectra: ions and spectral lines For obvious reasons optical astronomy developed earlier than radio and X-ray astronomy, and astronomers are able to learn many things from analysis of optical emission. Just as in the radio band, optical pictures, i.e. the spatial distribution of emission, can be informative. Even when a source is not spatially resolved, astronomers can still deduce some information about what it might look like close-up. These ‘visualizations’ of what is happening in a particular source result from analy

Gravity Overview - Free Science Video by Brightstorm
All objects with mass attract and are attracted by all other objects with mass because of a force called gravity. The strength of gravity is proportional to the mass of the object. We are pulled to the Earth by it's gravitational forces but we also pull the earth towards us. Because we are much less massive than than the Earth, our gravitational pull is not strong enough to have any affect on it. Gravity pulls us towards Earth such that we accelerate at 9.8 m/s^2. &n

Professor Patrick Duffy Inaugural Lecture: (Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world?
(Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world? Professor Duffy's research work focuses on policy and sport coaching, as well as applied work in sport-business transfer, which is part of a long-term project with Morrisons PLC. Patrick will address the policy and research backgrounds to developments in professional practice in this area. The traditional view of sport coaching as an emerging profession will be challenged, suggesting that sport coaching should position itself as a blended
