Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website. Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

Unfortunately very few history courses in Australia train historians to communicate to other interested audiences.

This module examines how historians since the Enlightenment have addressed these issues. Offering a panorama of the discipline's evolution, it invites students to reflect on a wide range of themes and approaches. In this journey through the 'history of history', students will be encouraged to reflect on how the concepts and methods encountered in the module might be applied to work in others, including the dissertation.
