A Great Way to Learn about Occupations & Build Your Professional Network
Informational Interviews are a great way to network with professionals, learn about positions that are or will become available, and/or learn about occupations you are interested in. The primary purpose of informational interviews is to learn about a job, career, business, and/or the education, training, and certification needed to do a specific job. It is not a job interview, but it is a fantastic way to develop a network that could help you find a job in the future.
