Some Tips on Conducting an Informational Interview

• Before the interview, be sure to explain briefly who you are, what you are
doing, why this person seems like an appropriate source, and what you
will do with the information this person provides.

• Outline the overall purpose of the interview and specifically those
questions you need to have answered.

• Record the interview.

• Ask for clarification of a response when necessary.

• Be organized, prompt, courteous, and professional.

• Write a thank you letter to the interviewee within a week of
your meeting (see next assignment).

*Don't forget . . . because you will be reporting on what another person has said, you will need to separate yourself from the interviewee. To accomplish this, try using phrases like "according to Dr. Reed" or "he stated."
