If you are unsure of who to interview? Ask classmates, friends, family members, work peers, etc. You should prepare at least 5 questions for your interview, but you may ask additional questions as well if you’d like. You should ask any questions that are important to your major field of study, time with family, salary range, independence, etc. Ask for that person’s business card or contact information and be sure to follow up with a thank you note or card to whomever you interview.
