Interview Questions: Importance of Written Communications in Your Field.

You must interview a person that represents a true “professional” to you. You may ask an employer or supervisor, a former professor, a mentor, or someone on your campus. Do NOT interview a family member or your instructor for this class. You may interview the person on the phone, via email, or in person.
You must ask a total of FIVE questions including the three listed below and two of your own devising. Include a reflection (250 words) on what you learned from the interview and how it will help you in the future.

This statement will be included as part of your final e-Portfolio. Your Professional Philosophy Statement should be 250-500 words.
As you consider what to include in your statement, keep in mind the things that employers find valuable: organization, resourcefulness, work ethic, creativity, motivation, perseverance, adaptability, strong written and verbal communication, and emotional intelligence.
Do not simply detail your work experience; that is what your resume is for. Instead, the Professional Philosophy Statement should encapsulate your personal perspective or approach to work—of any kind. What do you believe in? What do you bring to the workplace? What is unique to you? What will you do to help you, the company, and your colleagues succeed?
