Not sure how to network or what questions to ask?

Preparing for an informational interviewing beforehand is the best way to get the most out of it. To start off, you want to begin with a quick professional introduction with information such as your name, major, and interest in the field. Then you can dive into questions such as:

  • How did you get into this career?
  • What is a day in the life like?
  • What is the work environment like?
  • What are areas of need in this industry?
  • What advice would you give to someone entering this industry/job?

For more information and examples of questions to ask, check out our guide on how to prepare for an informational interview here!

This virtual event is made possible in partnership with the Student Alumni Association.
