Deliverable
Submit your assignment as a single document—either Word or pdf—to the
appropriate folder on myCourses before 11am on Tuesday 4/21.
To facilitate peer-to-peer learning, this deliverable (Part I) will be shared with
the entire class via myCourses discussion board. You do not need to include
the name or contact info of your interviewee in the Part I write-up—instead,
ALSO submit your write-up to the professor via the assignment folder and type
the interviewee name and contact info in the text box accompanying your
myCourses submission.
IMPORTANT NOTE
The two Informational Interview assignments (Part I and Part II) are nearly
identical now—even in due date. For the sake of continuity, their names and
grading weights were unchanged. Be sure to submit both Part I and Part II to
their respective assignment folders, AND to post Part I to the discussion
forum.
