5 Questions for an Informational Interview

I cannot tell you how many incredible opportunities informational interviews have opened up for me.

Regardless of where I am in life, I am always looking to learn from those with more knowledge, connect with inspirational people, and challenge myself to grow in new ways. I’m also now frequently on the other side of the table, and I’m so thrilled to help others discover their careers and passions.

Informational interviews are not just for finding a job (although they are certainly helpful)

Networking with someone new when you’re transitioning in your career, when you’re stuck, when you’ve moved to a new city, or simply because someone you’ve heard of seems really interesting are all fantastic reasons to learn from a new connection.

When I was a senior in college — discovering what I wanted to do, where I wanted to work, and how I was going to get there — I met a new person every week in my prospective field and picked their brain. I cannot thank them enough for their incredible generosity.

If you’ve ever wanted to ask someone out for coffee and have no idea where to start, these questions act as a great jumping-off point.
