Career Ready Wednesday

Networking during Academic Breaks!

Networking is the single most important thing you can do to support your job search. Setting up an informational interview is a focused conversation with a professional to gain information about an industry or career and to build a network.


  • Learn about current information beyond the knowledge provided in classes
  • Gain confidence in speaking with professionals in a comparatively low-stress situation
  • Connections can transform into an opportunity
  • Opportunity to explore different fields and companies
  • Make personal connections among management level personnel
  • Impress people who may be your future referrals

Networking DO's

  • Be focused and strategic. Target the companies you’re most interested in and seek contacts in those organizations.
  • Be well-prepared. Research the company and the individual in advance. Have questions prepared.
  • Keep the conversation going. Ask open-ended questions to gather more information.
  • Be an active, engaged listener. Listen carefully to the advice and information the person is sharing and take notes as appropriate.
  • Prepare to share. Think about your personal elevator pitch.
  • Always send a thank you note. It can make a lasting impression.
  • Stay in touch periodically. A holiday card with a personal note or even a New Year’s card would be a nice touch.

Networking DON’Ts

  • Don’t ask for a job. This is about building a relationship, not asking a favor.
  • Don’t do all the talking. Do more listening than speaking; you want to learn about the company and the functional area of interest.
  • Don’t be arrogant or disrespectful. This should go without saying!
  • Don’t stalk the person. If they don’t respond after three attempts, take them off your list.
  • Don’t monopolize their time. Steer clear of taking more time than specified without asking if they can spare a few more minutes.
  • Don’t waste their time. If it’s something you could have learned on their website, don’t ask.
