An Alum suggested the following script for successful informational interviewing, and we wanted to share.

Hey, I am [working towards my MPH at the University of Wisconsin] and I served with National Health Corps from [2014-2015]. I’m interested in staying in [behavioral health] and just [sent in an application for the Behavioral Health Coordinator position] at your company.

Would you have any time in the next week or two to have a quick chat with me about [Company], the industry, and how you got there? I’d love to take you out for coffee, or a quick phone call if you prefer.

Best, 

[Your Name] 

Hope this helps! What’s the worst that can happen?
