Business Interview – The written assignment will be an interview of a member of the business community (this may be a member of your family). The interview will be based on the interviewee’s knowledge/perception of the importance of the following topics to the decision-making process within the organization and to its customers. The paper should cover a minimum of 4 areas from:
*Knowledge of supply & demand *Government regulation *Price (as relates to elasticity) *Production & cost *firm’s Market structure *Labor market faced by the firm *International trade & comparative advantage*Market Failure (when there is government intervention)
The result of the interview should be typed and have summary, application and viewpoint sections. The business interview should be approximately 1,000 words in length and must include a graphical application on market structure (discuss your graph!):
You can draw the graph and scan it to include in your paper, cut and paste an appropriate graph (and discuss) found in your etextbook or use the drawing tool in MS Word (older version of MS Word):
How to Use MS Word to Create a Graph (this is to be used as an example of how to draw a graph – your assignment requires a different graph to be used than the one illustrated in this example)
Include the name, best time to contact and telephone number of the interviewee. Submit the results of the survey with your interview paper (the survey will also help you focus your questions for the interview as well). Ten percent of the interviewees will be contacted based upon the contact information you provide.
For late submissions, 10% will be deducted each day after the due date. (remember, under the State of Florida’s writing requirement for this course, the review must be turned in or the student can receive a grade no higher than a “D” for this course). The reviews are due the first day of the week noted on the course outline.
