What are the best ways to find someone to interview?
Hello! I’m a high school junior looking for someone to interview for my engineering class. The only requirements are that they are from an engineering or tech heavy background although personally i’m very interested in science or programming related fields so that would be preferable. I would also prefer that they live in/are from/went to School in my state-north carolina, but that’s not a requirement. I tried linked in and googling to find professionals near me but the majority of what came up was add listings.
Does anyone have advice on how I can find someone in that field who would be interested in an interview?
I would try to see if you can find a phone number for any of the companies you found in your search. If they seem like a legitimate engineering company, you should try to call and see if they have anyone on their team that would be willing to do that interview with you. Although it is not within their typical job requirements, they may be willing to take time out of their day to help an aspiring engineer like yourself!
If you aren't able to find any companies in your area, perhaps you could set up a virtual interview with an engineer outside of your local community? Again, I would recommend calling to see if interviewing on of their employees would be a possibility.
It was a great idea to post your question here! An engineer on the platform could also come across your question here. :)
I wish you all the best!

I am a mechanical engineer and would be happy to be interviewed by you but I understand your preference is someone in a science or programming field. I am located in Ohio and would be open to meet with you virtually if you are interested.
Regardless, I wish you the best.
