Unit 2 - Interview Proposal Requirements (Part 1 of 3)

In Unit 2 you will submit a proposal to your instructor identifying:

  • The facility
  • The proposed interviewee’s job title
  • The proposed interviewee’s job description

It is not necessary to include the name of the person you are interviewing.

Your instructor must approve your interview proposal PRIOR to your interview. If you proceed with your interview without receiving prior approval, your paper may be rejected.

Getting Started

This project will certainly require some planning on your part prior to conducting the interview. You will want to begin working on this project in Unit 1 to ensure you have an adequate amount of time to meet your project deadlines.

Be sure to identify yourself as a student during this process.

Do not conduct the interview the first week. Your instructor must approve your interview proposal PRIOR to your interview.

Once your instructor has approved your interview proposal (you will submit this proposal in Unit 2), setup an appointment with the professional for the interview. You may conduct this interview over the phone or in-person. (If you are able to conduct this interview in-person it is recommended.) Make the professional aware that this interview may take up to two hours.

You will need to adequately prepare for this interview by writing a short script and a list of questions to ask this person. Your questions should be asked to promote the interviewee to talk about his or her work. Questions such as “Do you like your job?” will warrant a yes or no answer. However, questions such as “What do you like most about your job?” will provide you with more information. Ask follow up such as “Why?” when applicable. You will need to obtain as much information as possible from your interviewee so that you have an adequate amount of information to write your paper. The questions that you pose to the professional should relate to the information required above.

Make sure that your interview does not exceed two hours.

Once you have completed your interview and conducted your research you will be ready to write your paper.

Unit 4 Peer Review (Part 2 of 3)

In Unit 4 you will complete a draft of your course paper and submit it in the Unit 4 Peer Review forum. You will review one of your peer’s papers and one of your peers will review your paper.
