Learning Goal: I’m working on a economics project and need support to help me learn.
This assignment will involve your conducting an informational interview with two different entrepreneurial professionals. It is best to interview professionals from two different organizations. Your interviewee may not be an immediate family member, fellow student, nor be one of your instructors.
