Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I loved taking this interviewing course with Christopher Perrello. He did an excellent job in making the things we were learning in the classroom relevant to the things we do outside of the classroom. Not only did we learn how to conduct interviews, but we did a mock interview during the course where he also gave us feedback on our cover letters and resumes. He really gave me a taste of what it will be like when I go into an official interview for a job. As a senior looking back, I wish I waited until my junior or senior year to take this class because I think I would benefit more from it now. This class analyzes political interviews all the way to entertainment interviews with celebrities. There is something new to take away from this class everyday and Christopher really knows how to engage with college aged students and make it fun!
I really enjoyed conducting my own professional interview outside of class. We were required to interview someone in the field we are interested in working in and it really allowed me to ask the questions I really want to know all while getting authentic answers.

Advice for students:
I highly recommend every CRS major (and non-major) to take this course because it is so relevant come job hunting season. It is also something that everyone will have to do in their future careers, whether they are the ones being interviewed or doing the interviewing.
