Engineering Research Guide: ENGR 100 Research Assignment

Occupational Outlook Handbook

Cite this as an online reference source with a government agency author.  The library's APA 7th Edition handout includes an example of how to cite this source.

APA Hints - Interviews

  • If you use a reference source that includes a published interview as part of a career overview article, the article can be cited as a whole and it is not necessary to cite the interview as a separate source.
  • Personal interviews conducted by you would not normally appear in the References list, but your instructor would like to see an entry for it.  The following suggested citation is based on the way interviews are handled in-text, since there is no example of an interview citation in the APA Manual.  Include the name of the person interviewed, the date of the interview, and the description of the event:
    Smith, A. (2020, August 1). Personal interview. 

Recommended Reference Sources

The following sources offer career information on various engineering areas and may include published interviews, extended salary information, and "day in the life" info.  To cite these sources, follow the example on the library's APA 7th edition handout for an entry in an encyclopedia or dictionary, in print or in a library database.
