OK, so maybe there’s no one right way to find the work you love, but I am surprised at how often overlooked this method is.
Informational interviews are an easy, effective, and power-packed way to not only get a taste of whether a certain field or job is really for you, but also to learn what it takes to succeed in the field and build important relationships and contacts.
Ever jumped into a field or a job without knowing what it was really like, only to find out later that wasn’t right for you?
Ever searched far and wide for work, only to realize that all the best jobs had already been snatched up by people inside the employer’s network?
Or ever wanted badly to break into a new field but had no idea how to do it?
Yes, yes, and yes?
Then this method is imperative for you.
Why in the heck aren’t you doing it yet?
Watch my interview with Isa Adney, author of Community College Success, below to get the scoop on why informational interviews are SO important, where to find people to talk with, and what questions to ask– plus her top three tips for making them as successful as possible.
Visit Isa’s Facebook page here, or click on over to her blog for a free download of the first chapter of her book, which– by the way, I was super, super, SUPER impressed with, so much so that I included it on my list of must-have resources for 2013. You should probably read it– just saying.
