We career counselors love informational interviews. Not only are they an excellent way to make contacts in your industry, but they also allow for students in the development stages of their job exploration process to learn more about specific professions. That being said, there are only so much informational interviews a student, especially a shy one, can do. That’s why I think Careers Out There, which I recently stumbled across, is particularly handy. A sort of interactive version of O*Net Online, Careers Out There highlights interviews with professionals from a wide variety of industry. Ever wonder what it takes to be a writer? Hear it straight from the horse’s mouth.
What interviews or articles on Careers Out There do you find particularly interesting or useful?
