2-Hour Job Search Boot Camp
Session 3: How to Conduct Your First Informational Meeting
Tuesday October 20
12 – 1 pm
NOTE: You must register for and attend Sessions 1 and 2 in order to participate in this session.
Conducting an informational meeting is just as important as the interview itself. This session will work on developing a strong list of questions to guide a conversation and how to elicit helpful information from your contact.
This session is part of a four-part series that will walk you through a step-by-step process to take charge of your job search and make connections in your favorite organizations.
We will be using the book The 2-Hour Job Search by Steve Dalton to guide us through a streamlined job search approach that produces results quickly and efficiently.

Tell me a bit more about The 2-Hour Job Search
Online job postings have fundamentally changed how people search for a job. Hiring managers increasingly rely on referrals to avoid reviewing hundreds of resumes per posting. However, job seekers crave the perceived efficiency that an online jobsite offers, pouring countless hours into an inherently ineffective approach.
Instead of providing laundry lists of “tips” which readers must trial-and-error through, The 2-Hour Job Search offers step-by-step, time-limited instructions for the most frustrating part of finding work — getting a first interview.
