Information Interviewing: A Strategic Tool For Job Searching
Thursday, February 26, 2015 
2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.    
Location to be determined. Email to register.

Over 80% of job postings are never advertised. This workshop will focus on field research (also known as informational interviews) as a means to landing those unposted positions. You will learn how informational interviews allow you to identify the kind of skill sets companies want in your field, what kind of career options are available within a certain company or profession, and allow you to build your professional network in order to tap into the hidden job market.
