In M1 Assignment 3, you identified a professional in the field of psychology to interview. You selected an interviewee employed in a psychology-related job that interests you and developed a list of fifteen questions. You also prepared a meet-and-greet plan and a script to use at the beginning of the interview.

For this assignment, you will conduct an interview with your chosen psychology professional using those fifteen questions. The interview must last a minimum of thirty minutes.

  • Relevant professional organizations
  • His or her views on professional ethics and academic integrity
  • The role of psychological research in his or her work
  • His or her greatest challenges and rewards
  • His or her reasons for choosing the field

Once the interview has been completed, prepare a summary in paragraph format (not question-and-answer format) detailing your meet-and-greet actions and script, the responses you have received from the questions you asked, and a discussion of any impact the interview has had on your decisions regarding possible future employment possibilities.

When discussing the impact the interview had on you, be sure to:

  • Discuss at least two strengths and two weaknesses you recognized in yourself after conducting the interview.
  • Identify at least one step you can take to address those weaknesses so that you strengthen your ability to achieve your chosen career goal.

Submission Details:

  • Write a 3- to 4-page paper in paragraph format in a Microsoft Word document and save it as M3_A2_Lastname_Firstname.doc. Cite at least two academic sources, including your interviewee. Apply APA standards to cite your sources.
