This assignment is the culmination of everything you have been working on in
this course and your chance to not only show-off your interviewing skills but also
to demonstrate your ability to network and develop new relationships. You are
encouraged to approach this interview as an investment in your career rather
than thinking about it only as an assignment.
For this assignment, you need to download and complete the Week
8: Informational Interview Template (Links to an external site.)Links to an

There are FIVE steps to the Informational Interview.
Step 1: Compile a list of individuals in your target career field whom you would
like to interview. Try to identify people who are working at a company in which
you are interested. This is a good opportunity to practice your networking skills.
Let your classmates, friends, family members, and colleagues know that you
need to complete an informational interview with someone in your intended
career field. You’ll be amazed at how effective networking can be.
Step 2: Prepare a brief introduction of yourself and the purpose(s) of the
informational interview. Prepare a list of open-ended questions that would be
appropriate to ask during the informational interview. An Internet search using
“informational interview” will provide you with many examples of questions you
might want to use.
Step 3: Practice your interview with a classmate, friend, family member, or
colleague and ask them to critique your performance. Identify ways to improve
based on their feedback.
Step 4: Set up a day and time for the interview and be sure to confirm. This can
be an in person interview, Skype/WebEx or phone interview – whatever works
best for the both of you. Record the interviewee’s responses to your questions.
Step 5: Send a thank-you letter, note, or email to the interviewee within twentyfour hours of completing the interview. And if appropriate, be sure to connect with
them via LinkedIn.
Note: Complete and submit by Week 8.

Stage 4: Advance
Once you have selected the person you are going to interview, strategically compose the
interview questions similarly to the way you composed your own questions for Week 7. It is a
limited amount of time that you are with this person so use your time wisely to gain as much
insight as possible.
Remember, the individual that you are meeting with could potentially be part of your
professional network, if they aren’t already. This could lead to employment opportunities for
you or the establishing of a mentoring relationship.

Reflection (30 points)
Summarize your take-aways from the informational interview. What you have learned about
the company, the interviewee’s career path, your potential career path, the company culture,
skills that you may need but still need to develop, etc.? Take this time to truly reflect on the
conversation and share your newly gained insights.
As mentioned in the previous weeks, an important step in any activity is the
reflection that takes place at the end of it. This is because it allows those involved
in the activity the time to analyze whether or not their efforts were successful or
not. For this reason, in this final week of CARD405, you are going to be given the
opportunity to reflect upon the work you have submitted this session.
