Good career decisions require information. The Center's career library has hundreds of books that describe occupations, and the Internet is an inexhaustable resource for finding out about careers, but reading is only a place to start. Talking to people in the field to find out more detailed information is invaluable.
1. First research an occupation in the career library or on the web.
2. Read our handout listing appropriate questions for an information interview in order to be well prepared. Don't forget to add your own questions.
3. Visit professional association web sites and visit the career section to learn if there are mentors who will share.
4. Connect with LinkedIn. (Visit our Youtube workshops to learn how.)
