Why Should I Attend?
An informational interview involves talking to people who are currently working in your field of interest to gain a better understanding of the occupation or industry and more importantly to build a network of contacts in that field over a period of time.
What Will I Learn?
Although the purpose is not to ask for a job, if you impress the interviewee he / she may remember you when a vacancy does come up. The workshop will touch upon how to prepare, how and where to target relevant interviewee’s, the type of questions you should ask, samples of informational interview letters and emails and how to structure the call if done via phone.
