Using Informational Interviews in Your Job Search or Career Transition

An informational interview can be a great tool for exploring new career opportunities, and learning more about your target companies and fields of interest. The purpose of an Informational Interview, as the name suggests, is to gather information that may be useful in one's job search or career transition. This information may be about a new area of the law, about different opportunities within or outside the legal industry, about a specific position and its daily job responsibilities or about starting a business. A typical informational interview consists of three parts: (1) building rapport with the person you are interviewing by showing your interest in what he/she does, (2) acquiring general information about your area of interest, and (3) acquiring information specific to your needs, job leads and tips that may lead to your employment.
