Week 6: Information Interviews

Informational Interviews

In this workshop we reviewed the benefits of realizing your own worksite values and the importance of informational interviews.

Worksite values are aspects of the jobsite that you wish to have in your career. They consist of creativity, helping others, independence, and working alone to name a few.  Further explorations of worksite values and how they align with the career you believe you would like to obtain can be found at the following link.

Informational interviews are a great way to learn about a potential career, without the time investment of testing it out or even interning. They are also a structured way to start developing a network of professionals, for most jobs are obtained not solely by replying to a job posting, but through the network you have developed. Additional information initially provided by the FUTURE program can be found below.
