Whether you’re making a career change, leaving the law, or you’re first starting out as a lawyer, an informational interview can be an amazing tool to advance your career. These interviews are called “informational” because you’re there to find out what somebody does and get their advice on that path. In this video, Cindy Tobisman, who practices appellate law, shares how an informational interview can help you years after you sit down for coffee with someone.
