As indicated on your syllabus, you have a reporting assignment to do for this course. You may complete the assignment any time during the semester, but it must be submitted to the dropbox in Microsoft Word no later than Nov. 1 at 11:59. The dropbox is titled “Media Professional Interview.”
You may choose to interview any individual who works in print, online or broadcast media, public relations, film or advertising. Your goal is to discover the following:
the skills needed for the job;
issues the individual encounters related to their profession;
the job’s current controversies and future directions.
This is an exploratory exercise that should help you learn more about professionals in the media. Have fun with the interviews.
Your essay should be between 350 and 400 words and provide a summary of the interview information written in third person (no personal pronouns such as I, me, etc.). You may quote the person interviewed.
The assignment will be graded for writing quality, content, grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
At the top of your submission, include your name, as well as the name, title, email, and business telephone number of the person you interview. Your professor may call the source to verify the interview and fact-check your story.
This assignment is meant to be a journalistic type of reporting experience, so no library or Internet sources or footnotes should be included. Think of yourself as a reporter who is interviewing a subject and writing a story based on what you have been told in your interview.
More specifically, answer the following questions:
Who is the media professional?
What does the professional do?
Where does the person work?
When and how did this person get into their field?
What obstacles or challenges did the face?
Does this person have any advice for aspiring professionals?
Would this person suggest this career path? Why?
What are the positive aspects of this career that the person likes the most?
What are the negative aspects of this career choice?
How much does this kind of job pay?
Here are a few additional ground rules for the interview:
You may interview the source by phone or in person. You may establish contact by email, but you cannot conduct the interview by email. You must talk to the person you interview. Local and national media professionals are accessible, and most media professionals will be friendly and accessible to students.
Every semester, I have students who do fine on their chapter tests but still fail this course because they don’t turn in their essay. Remember: This assignment counts for 10 percent of your grade and it must be filed on time.
