February 5: Using Informational Interviews to Find Your Dream Job

The Informational Interview is one of the most valuable, and perhaps least utilized, tools for networking and career exploration.  An informational interview is conversation with someone who is working in a career that you find interesting and you would like to know more about.  It is a great way to learn more about that field, get advice on pursuing a similar career, and learn about opportunities to gain experience to fill out your resume or CV.

In this webinar, we will discuss the basic structure of an Informational Interview, best practices for connecting with professionals in your field of interest, and why you should be using Informational Interviews as soon as possible to hone your networking skills and focus your job search. Dr. Rebecca Nebel will provide tips and tricks for using Informational Interviews to find the job of your dreams.

This webinar is intended for anyone interested in learning more about Informational Interviews and how to use them to secure a job you love.  This audience can include undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, or early career scientists seeking to learn more about a new career path.
