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

5.1 Common sense revisited It is worth taking a little time to reflect on what we have discovered so far. Starting from ‘what everybody knows’ about a social problem – or what are sometimes called the common-sense understandings – allows us to see a number of things if we apply the scepticism of being a stranger in our own society. First, there is a question about whether particular issues are commonly understood to be social problems. As we have seen, there are views which say either that pov

eBird's goal is to maximize the utility and accessibility of the vast numbers of bird observations made each year by recreational and professional bird watchers. It is amassing one of the largest and fastest growing biodiversity data resources in existence. For example, in 2006, participants reported more than 4.3 million bird observations across North America. The observations of each participant join those of others in an international network of eBird users. eBird then shares these observati
Water is vital. Life on earth would be impossible without water. But water can also be life-threatening. Consider the destructive power of rivers which burst their banks, or polluted drinking water sources. The MSc Watermanagement track focuses on understanding natural surface and groundwater streams and on managing, controlling and using water streams for society. This covers both ground and surface water, as well as rainfall and, for example, waste water. Watermanagement also considers not jus
3.2 Herbicide tolerance As you discovered from Activity 1, herbicide tolerance is the trait most commonly incorporated into commercial GM plants. A crop can be made tolerant to herbicide by inserting a gene that causes plants to become unresponsive to the toxic chemical. Before considering how the genetic manipulation can be achieved, it is useful to understand a little about how herbicides act. Many herbicides work by inhibiting a key plant enzyme necessary for growth (if you're not exactly sure what this mea

Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The segment provides examples of questions used to probe the student's ideas about particles, particularly, that substances such as air are made up of invisible tiny particles called atoms that are far too small to be seen through a regular microscope. When asked if he could draw air, the student responds that air cannot be drawn because it is just a bunch of invisible particles called atoms, but when probed furt
