Political & business experts come to campus

Dianna Andrade, People Communications Lead at Lyft, recently conducted mock interviews with students in the Drama 1B class. The class’s teacher, Ted Curry ’82, first met Andrade through USF’s Masagung Graduate School of Management program, where they are both part of the same cohort. “I always tell my class that studying drama has real-world applications, such as the interview process,” said Curry. “I realized that I should put my money where my mouth is, so I set up a mock interview day. I knew Dianna had an extensive background conducting interviews, and she has her degree in theatre, making her a perfect fit for an acting class.” For the first round of mock interviews, one student asked Andradre a series of basic interview questions followed by students analyzing the exchange through the lens of theater skills that Curry teaches. Andrade then offered her analysis of five more interviews conducted between pairs of students. “She stopped the exchange at key points to give examples of what was working and why, with students asking questions throughout the class,” added Curry.
