What is an "Information Interview"?
An informational interview differs from a traditional interview as it considered to be more of an informal conversation that can provide you with insightful information about a company and its general job prospects. Companies use informational interviews to speak to the potential employees within their candidate pool.
Attending networking events helps you to grow your professional network and create new connections. It is wise to create questions that ask new connections about their education, career path, job responsibilities, working environment, and industry trends.
