Resources for Participants

Guiding questions

1. Identify 3 strengths in your interpreting work. This could be anything from ethics and theory to on-the-job work.

2. Identify 3 areas you’d like to improve in your interpreting work. 

3. Where do you see your career and work 1 year from now?

4. Where do you see your career and work 5 years from now?  

5. Consider testing requirements in your state. Do you have plans to complete any of these tests in the near future? Do you need support on these tests? 


*If identifying goals/areas to improve feels like a daunting task, try narrowing it down. Perhaps ASL to English is more comfortable for you – it might be a great time to focus these 6 weeks on English to ASL in that case. 

*Your 1-year vision can help create short-term goals for your career. Whether it is focusing on an upcoming test, shaking free of your nerves, or simply growing more comfortable with your language use, a short-term goal focusing on something tangible and specific can be very helpful!

*Recording a sample can be helpful for your partner to work with you on identifying strengths and areas of improvement.
