VCU Career Services advises international students to consult the Global Education Office before any job or internship search. At VCU, only Immigration Services and the Global Education Office can advise international students (F-1), visiting researchers and scholars (J-1) and specialized employees (H-1B and TN) on their employment options in the U.S. Connect with this office at global.vcu.edu/students/immigration.
An informational interview is a professional development tool you can use to learn more about a particular career. In this type of interview, you direct the questions to a person of your choice who is doing work in a field or industry that interests you.
Informational interviews allow you to learn from another person’s career path, discover how they gained experience in the field, and learn the strategies and advice they have for someone entering the field today.
