Informational Interviewing is a powerful tool to enhance and further your job search, allowing you to gain information, expand your contacts and grow valuable relationships. Yet many job-seekers are hesitant to engage in this process simply because they don't understand the goals don't know what questions to ask, and fear they will be turned down. This workshop examines the informational interview in more detail and provides you with actionable takeaways to motivate you and to yield positive outcomes throughout this process.
