Informational Interview Assignment

The purpose of this assignment is to have you sit down with a professional who is currently working in the industry that you may be interested in for a future career. You can read about an occupation and watch a video, but talking to someone in the field will give you current and relevant information that you may not be aware of with your own research. This assignment is probably one of the toughest, but most beneficial assignment. For some students, this will require you to move out of your comfort zone in approaching someone and talking to them about their profession. Keep in mind there are many resources ON CAMPUS that can help you with this process.
