Health education also focuses on sex education. This is something we need in abundance. Sex education is sorely lacking in many schools. This could be one of the reasons why many students get pregnant in their teenage years. Educating students on sex will help prevent unwanted and unplanned pregnancies that can change the course of their lives. Another great factor to take into consideration regarding sex education is the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. Students who are educated on sexually transmitted diseases know how to prevent them. Students who are educated on contraceptives and pregnancy know how to avoid them.
I’ve met with individuals over Skype and I have trouble getting beyond their tech difficulties, clutter in the background, angle of the camera (up their nose), and their nervous habits (drinking water, clanking things on the desk, shifting around in their chair). Make sure all of these things are in order or your message will not be heard. The interviewers want to see that you are on your way to becoming a leader in the profession and being prepared is key. Second to that is being personable. Most people don’t understand that this involves being vulnerable, thoughtful, and well-rounded. Always have a couple of favorite stories in mind to share. Write then down on paper in front of you along with important career highlights and dates. Share your favorite book and how it’s meaning changed your approach to your work or be ready to share an embarrassing moment that you turned around into a learning experience. Good luck!
