  1. 1. The Hitchhikers guide to the Day in the Life journey Rules for a successful journey: Preparation: confirm time and place same day early by txt or e-mail Download a map with the place marked and turn up 5 minutes early Front up, shake hands and introduce yourselves Stress confidentiality Decide WHO will do the talking and who will do the recording At the end, thank again, shake hands and then within an hour, send a ‘thank you’ e-mail
  2. 2. Step one: the meeting ‘Thank you Julie for seeing us. We know you must be busy..just want to assure you this is confidential.. Might we record…? ‘Julie, could you tell us please..how did you become a manager…how did you begin your career” ‘Julie, could you tell us what a typical day is like for you… from the time you get up to the time you go to bed..how does your day go…what do you do…?’ Thanks….
  3. 3. Step two: developing the tale ‘Julie… what are the things that you really like about you’re job?’ ‘What are the things that you don’t like about your job as a manager? What are the hardest things you have to do? Thanks Julie. We have nearly finished but one more question.. ‘You are obviously a successful manager, with a successful career. What would you tell us as first year students of management to do to prepare for a career in business and management? What should we do while we are studying?
  4. 4. Important probing questions ‘Why does the company do that Julie?’ ‘What do you do when…’ ‘How do you go about ….’ ‘When is the best time to do ….’ Probe, question politely, ask for examples etc
  5. 5. Last leg of the journey ‘Thank you Julie for you help..when we have written up our talk we will send you a copy..’ Shake hands, leave and then within an hour send a ‘thank you’ e-mail The non-talkers transcribe the recording or write up the notes Also responsible for analysing the results Write into your ‘travelog’ (report)
