Join Barbara Bruno for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Informational Interviewing.
- We've talked about many different things, and I know you probably want to put them all into practice right now, but start with just one idea. Set time aside at the end of each day to determine the individuals you will contact the following day and attempt to schedule informational interviews. The way to get great and informational interviewing is to schedule as many as possible. Remember to prepare your questions in advance. Do your homework and learn all you can about this person's career path.
When you've learned how to conduct informational interviews, you'll have a professional network of people who could mentor you or provide you with referrals. If you'd like to learn more about your job search, I have several courses on this site that can help you take it to the next level. I'd also like to provide you with access to our career portal which can help you with your job search and where you can participate in the live job seeker webinars I conduct each week. Thank you for watching, and congratulations on completing this course.
