Interviewing in Action in a Multicultural World  

Interviewing in Action in a Multicultural World

Assume you are  employed as a counselor at your local high school. You need to conduct a  30-minute interview with a student who has suddenly had a dramatic decline in  her grades. Prior to conducting any interview, it is extremely important to  plan its structure, the type of information you hope to acquire, the timing and  sequencing of the interview, and the types of questions you might want to ask.  To prepare for the interview, analyze the structure of the interview and  present a summary including the following reasons for your choices:

  • Purpose of your interview
  • Discuss the topics you plan to cover and       the sequence in which you will cover them
  • Questions you will use to obtain the       information
  • Opening techniques to build rapport with       the volunteer
  • Types and examples of questions you want       to avoid

In  your discussion, please be sure you cite, at a minimum, the online course and the text book for the course. Your  paper should be 2–3 pages (not counting the cover and reference pages), be APA  formatted, and include a reference page.
