About Our Interview Questions

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.com. 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.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.

About Orthopedic Technician

March 22nd, 2017

Orthopedic technicians are allied health care workers who specialize in caring for patients with injured and broken bones and joints. Orthopedic technicians work directly with orthopedic doctors and surgeons. Their main responsibilities include applying, adjusting and removing casts, braces and splints to treat injured joints and bones. Orthopedic technicians also help with the fitting of prosthetic limbs and teach patients how to care for their injuries and how to use various types of mobility aids. Some orthopedic technicians also assist orthopedic surgeons in the operating room.

A high school diploma is the minimum education required to become an orthopedic technician. In addition, you must also complete a relevant training program through a technical school, hospital, community college or the military. Completing an Associate of Applied Science in Orthopedic Technology degree, which is offered through some colleges, will boost your employability considerably.
Thorough knowledge of anatomy, cast application and removal, sterilization techniques, medical terminology and infection protocol are a must.
At your orthopedic technician interview, you will most likely be interviewed by the orthopedic surgeon who you will be working with. They will want to make sure that they hire the right person who will be able to help them in caring for their patients. For the best chances of landing the job, you must impress your interviewer with your passion for the job as well as your knowledge and expertise. Going through orthopedic technician mock interview questions and rehearsing answers to commonly asked questions will boost your confidence and increase your chances of success.
