Informational Interviewing

Informational interviewing

Informational interviewing allows you to talk with people in your career field of choice to learn what working in that field would be like. No one is better able to describe the challenges and opportunities in the field than someone who has already experienced them. Planning and carrying out an informational interview is one of the best ways to explore career options, answer questions you may have about your career choice, and gain feedback and advice about how to succeed in your chosen profession.

Follow the steps below to conduct an informational interview all the way from the outreach to the end, and see examples of informational interviews in your field of study.
