Interview a manager

Learning Goal: I’m working on a management writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

You are to interview a manager and write a paper.

1. Identify the person, their position in the organization, how long they have been in the job, and (if applicable) your relationship to them. (Family is OK!)

2. Talk to them about their job. It is up to you to create the questions, but some suggested ones are below.

3. Write a 1,000-word paper on the interview. (most double spaced pages are about 300 words).

  1. Tell me about the interview.
  2. Tell me about what did you learn from the interview.
  3. How does the experiences and knowledge learn from the interview apply to what you have learned in this class?

Papers will be in a professional, business format. I will not tell you how wide your margins should be or select your font, but make it professional.

Use double-space on paper and upload in Word format.
