How do I prepare?
Enroll in the University Career Center's online informational interviewing module to learn about how to research the professional, industry, and organization ahead of time, types of questions to ask during these group meetings, how to show your appreciation to the professional after the meeting, and how to stay in contact. You are encouraged to come to the informational interview with at least two (2) questions you'd like to ask the professional.
NOTE: this is not a formal interview; it is an informational conversation with the intent to gain insight into a career field of interest.
