Informational Interview

What is an informational interview? This is an opportunity for a job seeker to get a sneak peek into the world of work in their specific industry. The job seeker has an opportunity to meet with a professional and ask questions about the job, organization, or field. This is a fact-finding session where the job seeker gets to do the interviewing. This is NOT an interview for a specific job, but instead an opportunity to network and learn more if the particular career may be a fit for you, your interests, values, skills and lifestyle.
