Pre-Informational Interview Research

Meet with one person from your contact list for an Informational Interview.
Remember that this meeting is to gain information or advice to get you to where you want to go. It should not be used as an employment interview.
Prior to your meeting with the selected contact, take approximately half an
hour to research the following general details:

Company name
Company address
Contact person and title
Web site
Date company established
Background
Corporate culture
Mission
Values
Nature of business/industry
Product(s)
National, International,
Multinational
Number of employees
Current stock price (if public)
Types of jobs currently available

Sample Informational Interview Questions:
Section 1—Industry Information
Section 2—Company Information

What attracted you to this type of work/industry?
What are some of the long-term trends affecting the industry?
With these in mind, what skills and expertise are companies looking for?
What is your typical workday?
Describe in your own words your company culture (example: “family-oriented,”“work hard—play hard”).
What are the top three qualities that you look for in the candidates you interview?
How important are “communication skills” vs. “technical skills”?
How is the company involved in the local community?
Who are the key competitors?
What are the key technologies?
Is your company positioned for growth or for profit at this time?
Does your company use a specific methodology?
What are believed to be the company strengths?
