Preparing to interview someone

Another research tool you may consider using is an interview.  It may be the case that you and possibly some of your classmates, will get the opportunity to interview a manager or member of staff working for the tourism organisation you are studying.

It will be important to prepare for the interview.  This will involve making notes and doing some background research.

You might find some of the information in the passage below useful.

Rather than interviewing one person, it could be that you and possibly others interview a group of people.  This is called a focus group.

There are four different types of basic questions.

  • Open-ended questions
  • Closed questions
  • Follow-up questions
  • Probing questions
