    Interview
In summary, for an assignment, the requirements include investigating a potential career/job and scheduling an interview with someone in the field of electrical engineering. This can take place in person, over the phone, or through email. The interview should include 5-10 questions and be confirmed by either forwarding the interview, having the interviewee email, having the questions with a signature, or leaving a message on the due date. Some sample questions include asking about the importance of communication skills, working in teams, key attributes of a valuable engineer, and the demand for electrical engineers in the future.
