The Power of the Informational Interview

An informational interview is a meeting in which a job seeker asks for first-hand career, industry or company information and advice rather than ask about job leads or job openings. Scheduling and holding in-person informational interviews should be at, or near, the top of any international student’s to-do list as it will help you gain first-hand information about the company that will help you with your job search strategy. You also expand your network to include professionals who can refer you for a job interview; and you practice your interviewing skills, including the opportunity to explain the value you can offer.
