Information seeking interviews are useful for people planning a career, anticipating a career change, or planning for future promotions. Here are some questions to guide your thinking. You may eliminate some of them, or add others depending on your own interests. Exactly what does your job entail? What are the educational requirements for this position? What experience is required or recommended? What do you like most about the position? Like least? If you could start over, would you choose the same career? Why or why not? What problems could I expect to encounter in a position of this type? What future changes do you see in this field (or position)? Describe the ideal person for this career (or position). What is the average salary for a person just starting out in this career? What questions could I expect if I were interviewing for a job of this type? What professional organizations (journals, newsletters) do you recommend? Could you give me the name of another person that I might interview?
