Interview Exercise PREPARATION Interviewee: Get “into” your role. Think about possible answers to common questions. Interviewer: Scribble down a few potential questions you want answered. TOPIC #1 – Academic Experience Gain an understanding of the interviewee’s educational experience at UMBC or other academic institutions. It is not necessary to divulge personal information. You may describe any job, even a fictitious one, however it may be easiest to think of an unnamed relative or friend. 56

Interviewee Types Political Paranoid Ah, could we have that stricken from the record?” Reluctant to offer any information beyond the obvious, especially about his co-workers. Carefully watches the interviewer taking notes, trying to read their upside-down handwriting, requesting that parts of the tape / notes be erased, etc. Frequently glances over his shoulder – “who is watching this?” Wishy-Washy (a.k.a The Waffle) “On the other hand…” She’s really not sure about anything. She’s very general and non-committal in her answers. Explains all sides of the problem, but takes no personal position. There are many possible answers to the question, so she tries them all Eager to Please “I’ve always been interested in organizational theory…” He is thrilled that he’s been asked for an interview. He really wants the interviewer to like him, so he does whatever he can to ensure that they do. Tries to figure out what the interviewer is studying and gives them the answers he thinks they would like to hear regardless of the truth.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
