Tip #4: Prepare questions ahead of time.

Have specific questions in mind that you’ve always been curious about. Some good ones to ask:

  • What does a typical day on the job consist of?
  • What do you like best and least about what you do?
  • What qualifications and experience does someone need to have to get a job in this field?
  • What is an entry level position in this field?
  • What are best places to look for jobs in this field?
  • How did you get started?
  • Do you know anyone else who it would be beneficial for me to talk to?

If you need help with this, you know where to find me.
