What can you gain from an informational interview?
I recently talked with a student regarding her experience. She could not say enough good things!
The person she met with helped her in lots of ways including:
Deciding what direction she wants to go with her major
Deciding what kind of environment she wants to work in
Deciding what classes to take
All that in a 20 minute meeting!
Why not call and schedule an appointment to talk with one of our counselors about how informational interviewing might be something you want to take advantage of.
We're waiting for your call!

What is your comfort zone? If you’re in job search mode, you probably need to step—or even jump--outside it. Don’t limit yourself to applying on internet job search sites. Get up, get out and meet people. Talk with people wherever you go. This doesn't mean you need to walk up to everyone you see and tell them you are looking for a job. Just strike up conversations with people, show genuine interest, and ask them about themselves. In most cases, they will also ask about you. Which will give you the opportunity to tell them you are looking for a job.
The trouble with comfort zones is they are so darned comfortable they are restricting. Just imagine. . what could happen for you if you were willing to take a risk?
