Networking is a critical part of the internship or job search. Some studies suggest that 70% of jobs are found through networking.
Informational interviewing is a way to gather information about different career options. In an informational interview, you meet with a professional in your field of interest, ask questions, and get advice for your next steps. This is also a good way to build your professional network.
