Informational Interviews

Want to learn more about an industry you plan on entering? A great way for you to do so is by setting up an informational interview with someone in that field. What is an informational interview? It is basically a chance for you to interview a seasoned professional who is currently in a position or industry that you want to pursue. These are completely informal so they can be less stressful than a job interview, but they are just as important.

During an informational interview, you'll be able to ask specific questions about that field, and you'll receive honest and unfiltered responses from the person you’re interviewing. This can be anywhere from what steps you need to take to what a day-to-day typically looks like.

This will help you get a good idea of what to look forward to in your career and will help you build a great connection with someone in that industry. It’s not as hard as you think either! One of the best ways to go about this is by logging into Cane 2 Cane and finding a person you want to interview and messaging them. You can also look on LinkedIn and reach out that way. You’d be surprised at how many people are more than willing to help you simply by informing you about themselves and their careers.

The Library Research Scholars Program offers University of Miami undergraduate students a unique, librarian faculty-mentored learning experience involving a deep and active engagement with the University of Miami Libraries’ research collections and service programs.

Students accepted into either the Library Research Scholars Program or Adobe Library Research Scholars Program will receive a $3,000 stipend for the academic school year and participate in a year-long research program that will culminate with an annotated bibliography and intellectual product.

All students will be matched with a librarian faculty member, who will serve as a mentor and supervisor. The programs require 5-10 hours of dedicated time per week in the University of Miami Libraries during the fall and spring semesters. Also, the cohort of scholars will periodically meet together throughout the year.

In consultation with a librarian faculty mentor, each student will develop a project that results in an intellectual product. For Library Research Scholars, the focus of the project could be any topic of interest and can include analog projects, such as a scholarly paper or written creative work. Projects for Adobe Scholars are required to have an audiovisual and/or multimedia element.

The Virtual Student Federal Service connects the talents of U.S. citizen college students with the needs of federal agencies. Since 2009, more than 10,000 remote interns have advanced the work of the federal government. The time commitment is about 10 hours per week during the school year. There are opportunities for all, from data visualization to political analysis. Internships are unpaid but may be eligible for course credit. Speak with a guidance counselor regarding course credit requirements.

U.S. citizen high school graduates, from rising college freshmen through Ph.D. students, who are enrolled at least half-time (as defined by the school) in college during their application and participation are eligible. Because the program is virtual, students can intern from anywhere. Students apply between July 1 and July 28 and may apply for up to three internships. A maximum of 300 U.S. citizen college students may apply to each internship project. Internship mentors select students in August. Internships begin in September and run for the duration of the academic year.
