interviewing either a professor in your major. -For some students, the choice of major is the first step toward an eventual career, and many of the facets of a chosen career or major cannot be discussed in one brief meeting with an adviser. Since the choice of a major is such an important one, this project is designed to let you explore your chosen field by interviewing either a professor in your major, or a person already working your field.
In order to gain the most up to date and practical knowledge concerning both your chosen major and career, you will be require-d to interview either a professor from the department of your major or a professional in your career of choice. Topics of interest regarding education will include specific demands (class requirements, alternate foci, sub-fields), career opportunities, and further specializations. Topics of interest for the career will include pay, demand, benefits, education, and experience requirements. Interview questions are not limite-d to these topics, but should be supplemente-d by questions discusse-d in class or of your own devising.
consider your audience to be college freshman that have an interest in this field, but has little knowledge of it.
This paper must be 4-6 FULL pages, typed, double-spaced, in Times New Roman 12 point font This paper should focus on informing an interested party about the career in order to give them the tools they need to make a good decision about entering the field.
One way of looking at this is that you are writing the paper that you wish the school could have given you when you first became interested in the field. Therefore, you will want to answer the major questions that people have about this field– education, salary, day-to-day duties, particular skill sets, etc.
you mus-t make sure it is cite-d in correct MLA format. Any other research you may choose to incorporate is optional, but should also be cite-d if use-d. The critical thing to remember. Your paper is an introduction to a career. not a paper that is all about your interview. The interview should serve as a main support for the paper, but not the main idea. In particular, try to avoid the “I asked and he/she replied” structure for the paper. Additionally, your interview should be sprea–d evenly throughout the paper rather than in one large chunk.
double spaced, Times New Roman font.
