Subject: Profile Interview for Linguistics 305W
Hello Dr. Tsoukas:
My name is Cesar Cisneros and I took your class Engineering 205 (Structural Design) during the Spring 2016semester. I am currently enrolled in Linguistics 305W and my next project includes interviewing a professor for my major of Mechanical Engineering or a professional who works in a position related to my career path that I am interested in obtaining post graduation.
I am contacting you because I would like to interview you for this project. The main focus of the interview will be centered on the use of writing for your position. The interview should take between 15 – 30 minutes.
My Linguistics 305W professor suggests that I request a copy of your resume for use in our project as well. If you are willing to provide an electronic or printed copy, it would be very helpful, however, this is not an obligatory component of my project.
Should you be available for an interview, please respond to me by email at email@example.com by this Friday, February 26. The Department of Engineering’s website states that your office hours are MW 10:00-11:00. I can meet you on Wednesday, October 6 at 10:00am. If another time works better for you, please let me know. The interview must be completed during the week of Tuesday, February 23 and Friday, March 4th.
Your time and consideration are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
