The informational interview is one of the most powerful, probably least used tools to finding and securing the right job. Yet, it is the best way to gain real-world information about a company or a career path. By talking to people already working in your field of interest, you can learn about organizational culture, seek advice, and perhaps, hear about potential opportunities. While the purpose is to gain information, it’s a great way to connect with a prospective employer on a meaningful, one-on-one basis outside of the traditional interview process.
