One of the best ways for a student/job seeker to learn about their career of interest and explore alternatives in a given career field is conducting informational interviews.
An informational interview is meeting with a professional who is working in a student’s desired career path to find out opportunities, learn about the industry and corporate culture, and gain job-search advice. It is also a great strategy to expand your professional network. Informational interview may also lead to mentor relationship or job opportunities.
