Now…what if the interview is informational? Meaning that you e-mailed a connection to learn more about their position and any advice they may have for you. If you haven’t done this already, e-mail a friend, acquaintance, someone NOW. Not only do these help you figure out what industry you want to work in, they help you network with those in the field (hmm mmm job opportunities!) Many people are glad to help you out because who doesn’t love talking about themselves and what they do? Interested now?
