CORE WORKER PROFILE PROJECT February 23, 2012Posted by jhicks in : Uncategorized , comments closed
FIRST THINGS FIRST . . .WHAT IS IT? An interpretation of an interview is common in various courses, such as criminology, education, counseling, communication, theology, and nursing. So your work on the CORE worker profile will help you develop skills in research, interviewing, observation, and analysis that you will use again. Writing consultants are familiar with your CORE worker profile and are anxious to help you.
WHICH COMES FIRST, THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG? Should you choose a person or a vocation/work area first? If no ideas for a person come to you immediately, you could do some research first–the egg first approach. For example, if you’re interested in social services for youth, read a little bit in the field to find career options. Armed with job titles, you can search for someone to interview. Usually, people feel talking about their work is a professional responsibility they are eager to carry out. Of course, librarians will help with research; writing consultants can help too.
CHOOSING THE INTERVIEWEE –the chicken first approach. We can help you frame the email that will land you the interview, if your choice is someone you don’t know well.
PLANNING THE INTERVIEW A planned interview is a good interview. A good interview yields a good paper. Before your interview, picture the kind of paper you want to write . . .what makes sense for this person or profession? What kinds of questions should you ask to help you fulfill your plans.
