Look what I got in my email Friday night, news about my informational interview course update!
I’m counting this as my 36th course, even thought it replaces one I did back in 2012 (or was it 2013?).
After doing my first course with Pluralsight, in 2012, I pitched them an informational interview course (see all my blog posts about informational interviews here). By that time I had been speaking a lot on stage and was passionate about informational interviews as the best tool/tactic/strategy for job seekers so an informational interview course was only natural.
Here we are in 2020 and I continue to believe (and) say that. I can’t imagine a more important way for you to spend your time, especially the time you have control over (quiet time, time when no one is reaching out to you, which I had in abundance in my job search).
Beyond being the best tactic for job seekers, it is an excellent tactic/strategy for people who are ready to really, seriously, and strategically network. It’s an super tactic/strategy for small business owners who are looking for partners, customers, investors, etc.
Is the Informational Interview Course Just for Job Seekers? (hint: NO)
A friend of mine is a professional speaker. He asked “could I use this to get more speaking business?” ABSOLUTELY.
Informational interviews is simply strategic, purposeful networking. It is networking with a system instead of accidental networking.
I believe in informational interviews so much I created a 6 week job search program that focuses on using informational interviews to find leads, and get you closer to job interviews.
