Reflection: Student Portfolios School to Career: Mock Biotechnology Interview and Professional Portfolio - Section 1: Overview


Companies representing various sectors often complain they aren't getting graduates with the skills they need. Why is that—and what should be done about it? 

This is a question that I have discussed with colleagues at the high school where I am honored to teach hungry, eager, aspiring biotechnologists and my fellow members of the biotechnology industry. This mock interview and professional portfolio project is my attempt to contribute positively to the growing concern surrounding this real and relevant inquiry. I invite all instructors to pose this question to their students and colleagues as classroom community members embark on this year-long project and to make amendments to this lesson based on the insights shared by students, instructors, and industry-leaders.
