blackwomanI have recently been introduced to informational interviewing.  For those of you who were out of the loop, like myself, an informational interview is not a job interview but one to gather as much information about the field and/or a specific position.  It is also helpful in gaining advice from professionals in that field.  More importantly, it’s a good time to build a relationship with a professional in the field(s) for future reference.  In turn, you build a strong network.  And we all know, what you know will get you to the building, but who you door will get you through the door.

Read how an information interview help this guy.

For more info, see Informational Interviews and scroll down to p.70.
