How Informational Interviews Help You Land Your Dream Job

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

Participant feedback

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.
