You will compile a list of questions to ask the person which could be related to anything as simple as favorite movie, vacation destination, life/career goals, politics, current events, etc. The questions do not have to be anything formal, they are mostly meant to help the conversation flow and to learn more about your interview partner. When the interview is completed, you will ask the person you interviewed to assess some of your interpersonal communication behaviors (what did they notice about the way in which you communicate, both areas which are good and needing improvement), then write a 2-page paper briefly describing the interview (who it was with and where it was conducted), some insight you received from your interview partner about your communication (both positives and negatives), then a self-analysis of how you think you communicated during the interview (both positives and negatives), and finally identify two skills you want to improve in the future.
Your paper should consist of: In one paragraph briefly describe the interview (who it was with, how/why did you pick them, where it was conducted). In 2-3 paragraphs provide some insight you received FROM your interview partner about YOUR communication. Then in 1-2 paragraphs write a self-analysis of how you think you communicated during the interview (both positives and negatives). And finally, in 1-2 paragraphs identify two skills you want to improve in the future. DO NOT report on the conversational questions you asked the person or the person’s conversational interview responses. This assignment is about you and your communication–both what you receive as feedback from the interviewee as well as your own self assessment.
