Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

II. Job duties
Describe the most significant duties performed by this person. Make sure you definitely describe their most important communication tasks. You might also describe the most unique, challenging, or rewarding aspects of their work.

III. Risk Analysis
A. Assess the trends. Introduce the idea of risk, as we are discussing it in class. Ask about the trends the interviewee sees in their workforce, company, industry or in the larger environment. What risks do they see developing? What aspects of their job could put them, coworkers, or their employer at risk? What actions would help them or their organization manage the risks? (Make sure I can see that you are using class concepts as you report on this part of the interview).

B. Analyze a risky situation. Ask your interviewee to identify a risky communication situation they have faced on the job. Pick one of the risky situations we have discussed in class (each chapter of the WK book concerns a kind of risky situation). Drawing upon the Risk Negotiation Framework, devise questions about the (1) historical, contextual, or relational factors that made the situation risky, (2) the personal and organizational communication practices that exacerbated or managed the risk, and (3) the outcomes of the risky situation. (Make sure I can see that you are using class concepts as you report on this part of the interview).
