Informational Interviewing


Informational interviewing literally means, "interviewing for information."  It's a great way to gather information about a career field of interest by speaking with someone who's working in that field. It's one thing to read about a major and the career opportunities that accompany that, but there's a lot to be learned from someone with experience and insight. 

Identifying someone to interview


  • Consider individuals in your personal network - family, friends, church members, former supervisors, faculty, your roommates contacts, etc.
  • Gather information early on by attending a job fair.  Speak with employers about the opportunities they offer with their organization.
