Small Business Interview Instructions are in the attached file.
The Small Business Interview is meant to offer a “real life” learning experience for students. It starts with selecting a subject to interview, and it needs to be domestic (U.S.) small to medium sized business and not a relative. Any exceptions to this must be approved by the instructor. It is strongly suggested that students use this to further their career aspirations, i.e. interviewing someone that is already in a business or industry that the student wishes to pursue. This will make the assignment more interesting and practical. Students need to prepare for this interview by developing a brief set of questions that can guide the conversation. However, please be aware that some of the questions need to be open-ended, meaning that the interviewee can elaborate (in contrast to close-ended questions that request a specific answer). The assignment will be graded with the following criteria: A brief history of the interviewee’s history and experience in his/her business An application of class theory, especially the entrepreneurial profile as noted in Chapter 1 (i.e. the student’s observation of entrepreneurial traits) Some quotes/paraphrases on recommendations that the interviewee has for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Assignments are expected to be 4 pages of text (not including the Cover Page of any Appendices), in Word, with a font size of 12 and 1.0 line spacing. It is required to include the Certification of Authorship Assignment Cover Page (Individual): submissions will not be accepted without it. As always, please feel free to contact the instructor with any questions or concerns. Please review your work for plagiarism using the TurnItIn review system. This TurnItIn video (Links to an external site.) will show you how to review your work. Please review the grading rubric below before submitting your paper.
