Jaclyn Coleman Interview Transcript Interviewer: Jaclyn Coleman Interviewee: Anna F. J: Thank you so much, Anna for meeting me. As we quickly talked about at the end of class, I’m investigating why attainable goals are important for future professionals. Really, I am hoping you can provide personal insights and experiences, which led to your achievement. It is crucial for this interview to be treated more of as a discussion, so you can feel relaxed and at-ease. With that being said, I want to hear your perspective on this question. I want to understand what worked for you and why you chose the track you did. So we will start with basic questions. Can you tell me a brief synopsis of yourself? What year are you and what is your major? Just add any other relevant information I should know before we officially get into the meat of the conversation. A: I’m Anna and I am 22.

I needed to experience both majors to know what I really wanted with my education. It was frustrating. There was a lot of going back and forth between what I did and didn’t want to do. J: So, what made you choose this major? A: I was in advertising for over a year and don’t get me wrong, I loved it, but I had used the advertising major more as a foot wetter to see what I really liked. I made it a point to start with a very broad major because of how many individual industries fall under the umbrella of advertising.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
