Workshop Description:
When it comes to building your career and landing a new position, you’ve probably heard how important it is to network. Informational interviewing helps to build connections, gain information, and uncover new career possibilities. In this workshop we’ll explore:
• How to find people to talk with
• What to write when making “the ask”
• Research to do before the meeting
• What to share about yourself
• Questions to ask
• Follow up & maintaining your existing network
• And internal networking, for those who want to grow their careers at a current employer
Included in this webinar, there will be an optional 20 mins where you will have the opportunity to practice an informational interview with a partner. This dynamic and interactive session will be hosted by guest speaker Sabrina Woods, an experienced career development specialist, storyteller, and supportive holistic coach.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Postdoc and Graduate Student Affairs Office, and the Harvard Chan School of Public Health Office of Faculty Affairs
