What To Expect In A Marine Biologist Interview (DOC)


  • pg 1
									<div class="KonaBody">
                 <p>Some students are particularly interested in becoming
marine biologists. However, you need to gauge your personal strengths,
skills, knowledge and capabilities to fully determine if it is the right
career for you. There are different branches of science, but only a
handful of individuals can truly have the patience and interest in
knowing more about the vast mysteries that fill the ocean depths. Here
are some things you can expect in an interview.<br><br>Initial
Questions<br><br>First of all, you have to know what marine biology
means. How is it different from other branches of science? Indicate the
advantages and disadvantages of studying marine biology. Although there
are no real disadvantages when it comes to comparing marine biology from
other branches of science, remember that ocean life is more vast than
anything you have ever known on land. Most of the ocean is still
unexplored and unknown, even though technology has improved significantly
in the past few decades. <br><br>Also indicate your reasons for wanting
to pursue the course. Some marine biologists want to practice to
hopefully solve mysteries and find treasures in the waters. Others are
activists who want to protect aquatic life. Others are simply interested
and have the right tools and mindset to patiently study the changes and
adjustments with regards to time and the world in general.        <!--

<br>Relations and Branches<br><br>You have to know a number of things
about marine biology, such as the different habitats, the various
organisms, the most popular animals and plants, microscopic organisms,
ecosystems and other effects that inland activities and technology have
on the ocean. Take note that oceanography, molecular biology and
environmental management are related occupations to the field. You can
also study these and determine which field you want to invest
in.<br><br>Personal Interest and Numbers<br><br>You can have other
advantages and benefits as a marine biologist. You will most likely be
asked which experiences triggered you to pursue such course. You can gain
the advantage later on of taking rare photos, experiencing rare events
that affect the ocean significantly such as typhoons and natural
calamities as well earning a big salary, depending on your job and
company. The average salary of marine biologists could be anywhere
between $45,000 and $60,000. You can also get summer salary from grants.
If you plan to teach, you can expect lower salary. A full professor can
earn higher at about $65,000 to $100,000 each
year.<br><br>Responsibilities<br><br>Since the profession of marine
biology is very wide, you can expect to have specific responsibilities,
depending on your assignment and the area that your group intends to
study. Some of the jobs that you may have include feeding and observing
activities of different organisms like worms, clams and other sediment-
eating animals. You may also do more interesting activities such as
following whales, sharks or manatees. You can also be assigned to
determine the different phases of reproduction and the triggers that
cause animals to migrate to different oceanic locations. <br><br>Your
responsibility may take a few weeks or several years, depending on the
project. You should expect to develop solutions for different challenges
and predicaments underwater. Marine labs contain different equipments
that you have to use and master over time.<br><br></p>                <!-
