Daily Interview Tip

Practice your "script" ahead of time before your informational interview. Think of it as a rehearsal and say the "script" until it feels natural. Try it out on a family member or friend. After your interview, you should also state in the follow up email that you welcome any feedback (positive or negative) as a way to improve and that you take each interview as a learning experience. This will encourage a more detailed response. Avoid dwelling on any political or religious activities that may create conflict with those of the interviewer.
