GPCB699 - Networking through Informational Interviews
Learn how to find people to connect with from inside and outside of your network, how to ask for a meeting and how to prepare effectively.
In this workshop, participants will learn:
- The role of an informational interview in their job search
- Networking tips and when to request an informational interview
- How to prepare for a successful meeting
- What to do and expect after the meeting
This workshop is led by Kristel Kabigting, from Career and Planning Services.
70% of the jobs available are not advertised. How can you find these hidden opportunities during your job search? Informational interviews are a great strategy to find out about these jobs that never make it to the job boards or websites. Read more
I would recommend this workshop because informational interviews help speed up the job search process by finding market insight and tips from people who are in the job market. Most jobs are not advertised so I suppose it will help to find my dream job faster than just doing the regular job search among advertised job postings.
