In this project, you’ll hone your interview skills and gain insight into the goals and challenges of professionals. You’ll interview someone who is a leader in a non-profit organization, the owner or manager of a business, or a professional in a field that interests you. You’ll determine the questions to ask, you’ll conduct the interview, and you’ll write a report that presents information and recommendations to your readers.
- This project includes these assignments:
Pre-interview memo including interviewee information and 2 Annotated Citations for “backgrounder” articles
- Interview Report (preliminary draft and final drafts)
