Post Informational Interview Tips
on: January 27, 2013, 07:57

The objective of an informational interview is to gain a better understanding of the career you are interested in pursuing. By talking with an individual currently in the field, it will be possible to get a first hand opinion of the career you are considering.

Some questions to consider asking:

    <li>What does a typical work day look like?</li>
    <li>What type of educational background do you need to begin this type of work?</li>
    <li>How did you begin a career in this field?</li>
    <li>What do you see as the potential for growth in this career[ field?</li>

There are no real rules to an informational interview.  You are in control of the interview. These questions are just examples.
<h2><strong>Benefits of an Informational Interview    </strong></h2>
<li><strong>Learn: </strong>It gives you a chance to learn about a career and a company</li>
<li><strong>Network:</strong> It expands your network</li>
<li><strong>Market Yourself: </strong>It allows you to express your interest in the career and state the qualifications you currently have as a means for a justification for your interest</li>
By the end of the interview, the person that you have interviewed will leave with the following:
<li>they will have an <strong>impression</strong> of you</li>
<li>they will know about your <strong>skills and past experience</strong></li>
