SocialFix: Informational Interviews- Pros and… Pros.
Google “job interviews are…” and auto-complete will supplement you with these highly constructive descriptors: “stupid”, “a waste of time”, “stressful” and “bullshit”. These are popular, loudly vocalized and rather incorrect opinions of frustrated, job hunting Googlers. Type in “informational interviews are…”, however, and you will get the words “important” and “useful”. Opinions of the cool, collected and wise.
