It is useful to research information on the Internet, but it is important to review this information with people who are knowledgeable about the job you have chosen.
An information interview (informational meeting) is a meeting with a particular individual for the purpose of gaining current, regional, and/or specialized information from an "insider" point of view. It is one of the most effective methods of obtaining more detailed information about a particular job and allows you to expand your network.
It also helps to deepen your understanding of the skills required for the job.
