Informal Interviewing 

Informational Interviews – it’s not about asking for a job …it’s how to ask for information that you can use to conduct a better search. This workshop will cover how to schedule, prepare for and conduct informational interviews. Prepare to share – Participants are strongly encouraged to create a meeting agenda, including ‘pitch’, why you want to speak with the individual, brief statement of your experience and what you want to talk about/learn.  Let’s work together!
