Informational Interviews

An informational interview can give you a feel for what a career or company is like by learning from an employee’s daily activities, without the pressure so often present in a typical job interview. This workshop is designed to explain how to request an informational interview and explain the value of asking for one. Other things Career Services staff will cover is how to prepare, what questions to ask, and what you should do after the interview. An informational interview is one of the most valuable methods of gaining industry knowledge that is often overlooked. Join this workshop to learn more.
