The biomedical sciences village at Elkhorn Crossing School hosted the first annual Professional Night at ECS. Fifteen seniors completing the capstone biomedical innovations course participated in mock interviews with industry professionals to gain real world experience in the interview process. Prior to Professional Night, Dr. Adams, biomedical sciences instructor, worked with students on creating a resume and letter of application for current job opportunities and future dream careers. Students also received a crash course on professional interview attire. With resume in hand, students participated in two mock interviews on Professional Night with extensive feedback from industry professionals on their overall performance.

This was a great night for all involved. As we look for ways to make learning more relevant and to find ways to incorporate the local community, I recommend reading the description below.
