On the agreed date and time, I reached the agreed meeting place which was a coffee shop in Vancouver. I had previously sent a photo of myself with my interview request thus making it easy for him to find me. We had a brief introduction where I explained to him how I was given his contact information and why I chose him to interview. He asked me questions about my study and future plans. After this, I asked him questions about his profession and communication skills usages at his work
A couple of days ago, I got the chance to interview one of my dad’s friends, Nate, about his experiences with interviews. Currently a Nurse Practitioner, he has had over ten different jobs in his lifetime, ranging from a managerial position at KFC to an emergency room nurse. Just like his past jobs, the types of interviews that he has been in have been wildly different. He has even conducted a few interviews himself. Soon I will be participating in important, career-defining, interviews and it is important that I understand the ropes of an interview. I asked him only a couple of questions, but I got detailed answers and invaluable insights from the mind of both a successful interviewee and
While waiting for our food to arrive I started the interview off with some introductory background questions. His demeanor during the interview was very comfortable. I felt he was being very open and honest with his answers. Our conversations flowed very smoothly. I felt as if I was speaking to someone from a different culture from mines, but the way he expressed his perceptions and experiences were not foreign to me. Plainly, I could see how people all over the world could share the same dilemmas.
The entrepreneur I interviewed was, Dehra Battle. She is the owner and stylist at Hair Savvy Hair and Nail Salon. The salon opened up on the Spring of 2010. I have known Dehra for the past 10 years. She has been my personal hair stylist for the last 10 years. Being a close family friend, I have witnessed her trials and tribulations with being an entrepreneur. I choose Dehra, because she is a wonderful and hard working woman; she has a passion for helping others with self esteem by creating signature styles that will give any woman the confidence. Dehra was not satisfied with working under a salon owner who was not concerned about the workers safety and customer satisfaction. She wanted to be in control and create an environment that customers would love to attend regularly.
We sat down on the leather, red couch and I slipped out my interview questions. I decided ahead of time to write the questions I was going to write about. I chose to ask about his interactions with his childhood pets, so I then looked him in the eye and asked him.
When I first found out about this assignment I was a little anxious because I didn 't know whom I would interview or how my request would be received. As I consider my options I thought it would be best to interview someone that could offer me some insight as to what it is like to be an elementary or junior high school counselor, which are the two age groups that I would most like to work with. With this in mind, I decided to interview one of my son 's past guidance counselors. This is a woman that I have admired since the first day that I met her. In talking with her I found her to be a very knowledgeable, caring, and open person. She has been in the helping profession for over twenty years and working as a guidance counselor since 1999.

I had the privilege to interview a member of the HR department at Liberty Diversified, International (LDI). LDI is a family of seven companies in different markets such as: custom packaging solutions (Harbor Packaging), retail solutions (Immedia), and office furnishings and solutions (Safco), to name a few. Being a freshman at the Carlson School I was really nervous about this assignment because I didn’t want to make a bad impression by interviewing someone I had no connections with. Thus, I decided to interview Erin Hanson who is and HR specialist for Liberty Diversified, International who aligns with their workplace furniture and solutions business Safco. Erin is actually a graduate of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities so it was really cool to have the opportunity to meet an alumnus. I met with Erin because I have a relative in Safco who works as a business analyst who was able to set a meeting with her and even drive me to it. I asked Erin a series of ten questions relating to various facets of HR that we had discussed in class prior to my meeting with her.

The person I chose for this interview was my father, Vathana Ean. I chose my father because he has seen the changes that have happened in Canada for thirty years, he has seen the beginning and rise of technology, and has been using it for the past twenty years in his job. He has seen the slow shifts of society, the trends that have come and go, and the situations in the past arise again. My dad lived as a young adult in the eighites, an era showing rapid advanacement in technology and the rise of globalization. It was a simpler time, there was no internet nor cell phones, no computers either unless you were rich, and people were more connected personally.

I reached out to Jonathan as I have recently become interested in entrepreneurship and Assets vision is to make sure that aspiring entrepreneurs in the Lancaster area have access to funds, training classes, and general guidance while starting their business. Jonathan responded to my email within hours and was very open to talking with me. I expressed my interest in wanting to do the interview at his office, however he felt it would be easier for him to do it over the phone. While I was a little disappointed because I wanted to be able to get a feel for the office and general atmosphere, I understood he had a busy schedule. I had two phone calls with Jonathan; one where I gathered the bulk of my research, and a second a couple weeks after to fill in some gaps I had.
