Some questions that might be asked of you:
- Where do you work and what do you really do?
- How did you get this job?
- How did you get your first job in the field?
- How did Eureka College prepare you for this type of work?
- Does it require any specialized education or graduate training?
- What advice would you give someone looking for this type of job?
- What would a typical first job in this field be today?
- Can you suggest someone else with whom I can have an informational conversation?
- Would it be possible to “shadow” you at work for a day or two, so I can get a sense of day-to-day activities?
