Today Kent and I are going to simulate an interview with our teacher (see title). It will consist of 10 questions with what we think the answers are. Maybe I can compare our answers to our teachers. At the end we will add a disclaimer with the interview. We learned about them in class today and I have read many of them. Well here is our simulated interview. I hope the questions Kent and I (Emily) are helpful for you if you ever do an interview.
