LinkedIn & Informational Interviews

Students who visit the CDIC to discuss exploring majors and career paths and searching for jobs and internships often see Shannon & Nikki navigate through LinkedIn to identify Assumption College alums who might be good connections.  We’re always here to help you get the conversation started, but with a great LinkedIn profile and a little preparation, you can use LinkedIn to reach out to your network and ask alums for career advice.  Conducting an informational interview is a low-pressure way to approach alums: asking for their time and advice is more likely to get a response than asking for a job.

Check out this great career expert blog from LinkedIn on Mastering the Art of the Informational Interview.
