1. Look over the attached document, "Week 8 - what we did and why we did it." What, from what we did this week, do you think will be most helpful for you when you're conducting your interview?
What helped me the most was on Thursday when saw the model interview and focused on follow up questions. This helped me get a good idea on how to ask questions based on the subject your on. Also noting the posture that was being used and even the little details like nodding your head, leaning forward and more.
2. How will you apply what you're learning about interviewing to other aspects of your life, now or in the future?
It's really going to help in any professional environment. You learn how to be alert, attentive and most importantly how to be prepared. We did a lot of background research about where we wanted to aim the topic of the interview at and that's something that I believe will help in so many different circumstances,
3. How are you going to take your work on this project to a higher level than the work you've done in the past?
In the 8th grade we did a very similar project where we brought in veterans and interviewed them asking them about there past experience and stories. What I think will take this project to a higher level is the fact that this is more of an individual project whereas the 8th grade one was done in a group. This will force me to really get everything done and put a lot of effort into it.
