Conduct an informational interview

Do you know what an informational interview is? An informational interview is a perfect way to get insider’s view of the professional field.  The objective of such conversation is to find out what a specific job is like by talking with someone who is currently working in this field.

This week, your task is to role-play an informational interview with a fellow learner in this course.

Step 1

Study A Role-Play for Player A and A Role-Play for Player B below. You will switch with your partner so you get a chance to act both in a role of the interviewer and the interviewee.

Step 2

Have you shared your Skype names with other participants of the course? You can find a partner for this activity among those Skype contacts. In case of questions, talk to your eFacilitator about how to do this activity.

Step 3
