Networking Basics 3: How to Prepare the Right Questions

Learn how to craft questions for a successful informational interview.

Now that you've learned how to write a successful outreach email in Networking Basics 2: How to Request a Conversation, it's time to prepare customized questions for the conversation.

In Networking Basics 3: How to Prepare the Right Questions, you'll learn how to ask the right questions for your specific contact and situation.

Once your contact has agreed to meet for an informational interview, you'll want to make sure you're asking questions that are in their wheelhouse. This will not only put your contact at ease, but will also result in a conversation that provides you the most useful information that they could give you.

This course will teach you how to prepare questions that:

  • Are relevant to your contact's experience
  • Resonate with both you and your contact
  • Will get you the most useful information possible

Learn how to come up with questions tailored to your contact that will result in a conversation that clicks.

Forget fake, robotic networking. Networking today means building authentic connections.

To propel your career forward, it's about connecting authentically with the right people in your network. Whether you're looking for access to the 85% of jobs that aren't posted online, want to save years by finding the right career fit, or need help navigating tricking workplace situations, networking will get you where you need to be.

In our four-part Networking Basics course, you'll learn how to start, build, and maintain professional relationships that will fast track your career.
