Conducting an information interview allows you to examine career fields which you are interested in and gives you opportunities to meet and network with industry insiders!
How Do I Prepare?
An information interview is an appointment that you schedule with a particular individual for the purpose of gaining valuable information from an insider’s point of view. If you are in the process of choosing a major, making career decisions, changing career, or beginning a job hunt, these interviews may help you explore your possibilities.
The USTP Career Center conducts Mock Job Interview to students who want to practice their oral communication and analytical skills so that they will be prepared once they will be scheduled for an actual interview.

Evaluate your experience.
Follow up with a note thanking your contact for his/her time and interest. You may want to include your conclusions and decisions resulting from the interview. Eventually send a resume and an application letter or form. Record the information you obtained, including names, comments, and new referrals for future reference. Consider making appointments to interview referrals.
