This week you will conduct an informational interview using the plan you created last week. This is your field research for the final Portfolio research project Option #1. This interview will help you assess how your chosen issue or topic is dealt with in practice.
Select an agency that works with the issue or topic you identified in Week 2.
Conduct the interview with a supervisor or manager (again, using the plan you created last week). Remember that the interview can be conducted in person, by telephone, or by Skype (or another Internet-based application).
Present the results of your informational interview. What did you learn about the agency? How will this contribute to your project? What themes surfaced from your analysis of the interview? How might these inform your final research project paper, or how have these themes changed your thinking about the human services field?
Your well-written plan should be two to three pages in length and formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
