An informational interview is a meeting with a professional contact who can help you learn more about a career, an industry, or even a specific organization of interest. Interviewing a professional within the career you're considering, will give you a one-on-one connection to advice and information.
Job shadowing can be thought of as an extended informational interview. You can get exposure to a "day in the life" of a career of interest to you to help determine if the career might be a good fit. The duration of a job shadowing experience will be decided by you and the person you’re shadowing.
