Informational Interviews (Career Conversations)

The purpose of an informational interview is to gather information and meet someone who is in a role or company you aspire to be in. It’s not a job interview – the person conducting the informational interview (you) should be the one asking the questions. 


  • Get firsthand information about the realities of working in a particular field, industry, or position.
  • Get tips and knowledge about how to prepare for your career and what it takes to become employable in the field.
