Just Ask

As you discover a new career interest and begin seeking out candidates to informational interview, ask the right way.   Most people will gladly talk with you about who they are and what they do if you focus your interest on them.  Start your request with a statement that indicates you have done some background research and care about that information.  Limit the amount you share about yourself and seek out their input.  Eventually you end up sharing your story during the informational interview when invited to do so.
