INFORMATIONAL INTERVIEWS

Informational interviews are informal 20-30 minute conversations via phone, in person, or via Skype that you can set up with professionals in the field. These conversations can help you determine if the organization is a good fit for you, provide insider tips on what it's like to work there, what skills the company values, and help you develop key networking relationships that may assist you in finding or creating internship or job opportunities.
