WIB-Southern California: San Diego Miramar College Biotechnology Program Mock Interview Night, December 9, 2019

Posted By Kristina M Herbert, Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Young Women In Bio attended San Diego Miramar College Biotechnology Program Mock Interview Night. YWIB volunteers Debra Hammill, who works as a Senior Quality Assurance Associate at Tanvex Biopharma, Kristina Herbert, a Research Assistant Professor and grant writer at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, and Jocelyn Ramirez, an Associate Scientist at The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, as well as other local biotech professionals each conducted mock interviews with four students from the Miramar College Biotechnology Program. Each student was evaluated on their interviewing skills and given feedback on their resume and answers to interview questions. The night ended with general feedback from all interviewing volunteers. Students were encouraged to make the most out of their resumes, highlighting any and all accomplishments. They were told to emphasize their transferable skills as many of them did not have a ton of work experience. Students were encouraged to be prepared with questions about the company when going into an interview and to recognize that they were also interviewing the company to determine if it was a good match for them.
