One of the best sources for gathering information about what's happening in an occupation or an industry is to talk to people working in the field. This process is called informational or research interviewing and is an integral part of your networking activities. An informational interview is an interview that you initiate – you ask the questions. The purpose is to obtain information, not to get a job.
Reasons to Conduct Informational Interviews:
- To explore careers and clarify your career goal
- To discover employment opportunities that are not advertised
- To expand your professional network
- To build confidence for your job interviews
- To access the most up-to-date career information
- To identify your professional strengths and weaknesses
- To decide whether a particular field is right for you
- To identify how to make yourself more attractive to employers
- Steps to Follow
- Questions to Ask
