As far as I recall, I caught her a few times in the library, alone, however, that time I wasn’t brought in to her. Since we accepted a few groups talking, hosted by Jacqui and a short conversation we had, I guess it is nice if I attempt to know her better. This young woman, somehow excites me. Frankly, I really would like to be friend with this girl. Perhaps the differing attitude from her friends inflicted the curiosity.
We would also go to the library to check out easy level reading books to have her read to me. I would correct her English when it was wrong and do all I could to boost her confidence. It took me a while to understand and figure out what the best way to teach her was, but it was a fun experience for the both of us. Teaching her English was difficult because things that
The very first nonverbal communication was eye contact. During the interviewer the interviewer very seldom lost eye contact. Upon entering the room and starting the interview the interviewer did not extend her hand so that we could handshake. Even though she was sitting at her desk she was still leaning in which showed that she was engaged in what I had to offer. She would also smile and nod when I spoke about certain situations.
While Armstrong (2006) described an interview as a conversation with a purpose. He went ahead and explains it is a conversation because candidates are able to talk freely with their interviewers about themselves, their experience and their careers. We agree on both of them because interview is truly more like obtaining information from the interviewee, and it is involved in a conversation as Amstrong said in 2006. Advantages of interview Through the interview, both parties will have some advantages and they are as follows. Interviews allow more focused discussions and follow up questions.
The interviewer allowed the victim to tell her story with few interruptions. The interviewer used clarification question in sever instances in order to get a better understanding of what the lady was trying to say. The interviewer confirmed information obtained by paraphrasing what the lady said back to her to make she they were on the same page. The interviewer concludes the interview in a positive way by thanking the lady for her time but should have told her if she remembers anything about the incident that may be of help to the investigation to contact him. The interview room was also set up in an effective way because of how the chairs were placed at an
Off camera Mary told me she thought the interview went well, she did not give me much feedback about my communication skills. I think this may be because she did not want to hurt my feelings. I feel I have much room to improve that I will discuss later in the paper. Although Mary chose not to be on camera I perceived I made Mary feel comfortable and open to answering my questions honestly, although my body language appeared to be somewhat judgmental.... ... middle of paper ... ...e constructive feedback to contribute to our conversation. Next time I would also be more prepared.
In order to learn more about the career in which I want to pursue, I went ahead and conducted two different interviews with two different pharmacists. The first pharmacist that I interviewed was Suzanne Sterling. Suzanne Sterling is a one of the few local pharmacists from the town in which I was raised. I chose to interview her because I knew I would be able to relate best to her because my hometown is so small. We didn’t discuss anything worth sharing about her schooling but instead we talked a lot about her job now.
Instead of being close minded and resolving their comments, I carefully take their comments into consideration and change the errors I have made. In regards to my evaluation essay, I have become more open to different topics and other research options such as going to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s library instead of constantly using the internet for sources. In the beginning of the school year, I was close minded with doing book work. I did not think book work was necessary until I began using it to my advantage for my essays. I now know book work and other activities are used to improve my writing and to give me a sense of direction.
I also used a gentle tone when interviewing to come across as unthreatening and welcoming to the client. I also used head nods, and hand movements as a way to show that I was engaged with what the client has to say. Open Questions- I was good at coming up with open questions to ask. I never found myself stuck with nothing to ask, or say, after my clients was finished telling part of her story. I asked the right open questions that encouraged the client to tell a bit more of the story, which was effective, because after every open question, it allowed me to learn a bit more about my client, and her story.
“What does it matter which order I declare my integer variables,” I would ask, “The program works perfectly either way.” My professor, I quickly learned, was a “my way or the highway” kind of teacher. To avoid lost points for formatting, I would often go to her office hours and ask her to review my assignment before I submitted it electronically. She was very helpful, pointing out ways that I could optimize the code so as to reduce my own workload in the future. She was borderline rude at times, though never to me. When a student seated next to me failed to understand a relatively basic math principal and its use in programming, my teacher pointedly asked, “Didn’t you learn this in the third grade?” much to the student’s
