For Career Changers, It Pays to Talk to Strangers:
"If you knew that picking up the phone and talking to a stranger, or e-mailing someone you didn’t know could help you get into a new career, would you do it?
If your answer is yes, conducting informational interviews needs to become part of your job search strategy. Although we tell children never to talk to strangers, when it comes to changing careers, job seekers benefit from taking a more grown-up approach. Looking to work in a new field – perhaps one of these areas with better than average prospects for 50+ workers? Making talking to strangers a priority can help you."
I thought this was an interesting approach which might prove helpful to our job hunting arsenal! What do folks think? Can you rustle up some interesting prospects to interview? Post your thoughts and results if you tackle this strategy!
