Two-Year College Interview Questions

This page is based on a handout prepared by Eric Baer, from Highline Community College, for the 2005 workshop on Preparing for an Academic Career in the Geosciences. All of these questions have been used in community college interviews; a typical interview would consist of a total of 8-10 such questions.

Local Geology

Eric writes, "There may be specific questions about either local geology or specific classes. For example, I remember being asked about water issues in Los Angeles at one community college interview and about ophiolites at another." In short, be prepared to demonstrate your expertise by answering relevant questions about the local geology.
