HU Student Conducts Research on Volcano in France ​Daniel GarzaLas Vegas, N.M. – Highlands University graduate student Daniel Garza is the first researcher to produce a detailed geologic map of the Puy de Dome in central France, discovering that the iconic volcanic landmark likely developed in two phases rather than one as scientists thought. At a height of 1,465 meters, Puy de Dome is the largest of 80 extinct volcanoes in the Chaine de Puys mountains range.

You came to the right place if you are you preparing for an internship interview. We are well aware interviews can be intimidating and nerve-racking. You may be thinking: What do I say? What are they going to think of me? What are they going to ask me?

The key is preparation… and the best way to do that is to think about the questions you will be asked. If you are Googling “job interview questions” you might get results more suitable for a full-time job. Since you are not expected to have a ton of professional experience, interviewing for an internship or co-op opportunity is different than interviewing for a full-time job. You most likely won’t be asked questions that have to do with your experience, but more so about your career goals and skills you have developed in college.
