For the second year, optional mock interviews were offered to the First Year HCAD students during the ACHE Congress in Chicago in March. Four HCADAA board members took part in the interviewing process, reviewed resumes and helped students hone their interview skills in preparation for the Preceptor's Conference held on April 30 - May 1. A total of eighteen mock interviews were completed. The students who did not participate in the interviews had other responsibilities with the ACHE Conference.
The interviews were held in the Q Centrix Headquarters courtesy of Milton G. Silva-Craig and Jim Bohnsack BS '97, MS-HCAD '99. Board members and students gave the mock interview process high marks and the organizational process of the interviews has become more streamlined. Board members commented that such mentoring activities as mock interviews are integral to the strength of the HCADAA and its growing network. Special thanks to the four HCADAA board members who participated in the 2015 Mock Interview sessions: Dorothy Benavidez '89, Jim Bohnsack, Patrick Halinski '11, and Ashley Hixon '00.
