Not really. The forum is global, and anonymous. A face-to-face discussion is unlikely. So, invitation declined.

Try "Anonymous Poster #1" instead, perhaps?

This^^^.

Check out /r/engineering. On the right side menu there is a list of engineers who are open to interviews.

If you get stuck, PM me and I might be able to arrange something.

You could not even get an interview with a vampire from this site. Engineers don't do homework, but HUSH has a great resource link for you!

Some of the members here, including me, have tried these "interview" questions before. Not very successfully.

Some wanted an introspective reason for why you chose your particular field, then went on to sound more like a sociology assignment than an interview for engineers, others wanted too much personal information.

Hush has a great lead for you.

Did your instruction give you any advice?

Lyn makes an excellent point. Before you make an appointment for your interview, you should be able to tell the interviewee why you want the interview, the kinds of information you want, and about how much time you'll need.

For example: you have an assignment to talk to a person who is working in a career you think might interest you. You plan to ask what the person's job is, what degree(s) are needed, how long she or he has had the job, what s/he likes, what s/he doesn't like as much, what other engineering work s/he has done. The interview will last 45 to 50 minutes. If you plan out what you're going to ask, you'll have your paper half-written already.
