In capstone we use interviews as one source of research. At first I was freaking out because I had no idea how we could contact people concerning my topic. Thankfully, we had an organizer that helped us find out how we could contact someone which brings us to the next section.
The process of finding my interview was kind of annoying at times and fun at others. Like once we began the interview part of capstone I was contacting AFL-CIO, a major union in america. In had made this big email about what to say and everything and sent it fingers crossed. I thought that they would just ignore me but to my surprise, they responded. I thought that was great but what they said was not. They completely misunderstood what I was saying and when I tried to clarify they ignored me completely. So I went back to square one and found another person to interview. Then suddenly my dad forgot about it and we were unable to do it on the intended day. So we bumped it ahead one day and when it happened it was perfect. All my questions were answered and everything worked out. So that brings us to the next section.
The interview was very good and it did not go as I thought it would. I learned a lot about the everyday life of a steel worker and how the unions have helped him. I found out a lot of stuff but the one complication was that the recording was weird. It kept pausing itself and it also disappeared but luckily we were able to find the recording before school started. Other than that the only complication was that the person I interviewed had bad connection so some parts of what he said were barely audible.
Overall the interview was very fun and nerve racking as well as interesting. If I could do it again I would probably have asked better follow up questions. I hope that my capstone will turn out good and that people will actually watch it.
