- helps you focus on the value you bring to employers and identifies the unique traits you bring to the workplace;
- delivers an authentic message to hiring managers around your career goals and depicts who you are as a professional;
- enables employers to see not only the skills you have, but also the unique personality and character traits you have to offer; and
- helps you define how your vision for the future aligns with the long-term business objectives of the hiring organization, effectively elevating your status from commonplace commodity to one-of-a-kind package.
Take a moment to describe your professional strengths and make an argument for why they are important.
WEEK 3: INFORMATIONAL INTERVIEW
Different from a job interview, an informational interview is a conversation you arrange with someone who works in a field or company that interests you. The purpose of this type of interview is to help you explore an industry, organization, or job title. You may ask questions focused on how to break into an industry, what a career in that field or organization is really like, and whether it fits your skills and interests. Since you are not seeking a job offer, think of informational interviewing as a way to gather information and to prescreen a potential job, industry, or company.
