INFORMATIONAL INTERVIEWS: How to Network as a Beginner

Many of you have reached out to me for an informational interview or to learn more about technology consulting. Most do well, but still a decent number of people have done questionable things that would raise red flags to working professionals. My thoughts is that they are not intentional but just uninformed!

I’m finally made a video about how to do networking the RIGHT way. I have been on both sides as a college student and as a technology consultant at Accenture, and there are still a few things that bothered me or I learned the hard way. Hopefully you can all benefit from this video! I will have another video on Thursday specifically on how to conduct a good informational interview!

Any questions at all about the information I provided or about Accenture or technology consulting, please let me know!

I’m known as an extrovert to many people but I’m really an introvert. According to Myers Briggs, I’m even 90+% Introverted haha. Takes a lot of energy, but sometimes you need to push yourself! Social gatherings could intimidate you but if you focus on genuine relationships, it makes things so much easier. ❤️

“I’m going to kick some ass and remind them that I’m fierce.”

Jessica Pearson is QUEEN! If you guys haven’t seen her in Suits or Pearson, you have to watch the show. In the show, Jessica is a badass, head-turning, top-notch Black BOSS in a law firm. Let her be a role model for you all.

A lot have been wondering how to stand out in their internships or what they can do in their now virtual internships. My suggestion is to reach out for a coffee chat or a lunch break call and really get your name out there. It may be difficult at first, but trust me: you’re FIERCE and you just need to believe in it.

When I was the only female intern at my time in Analytic Partners, I didn’t let that stop me. I proceeded to meet up with over 20 employees for coffee chats and lunch breaks to learn about them, the company, and their jobs. I built my spheres of influence. I even got to have a coffee chat with the CEO!

I also didn’t stop there and started Women Wednesdays. Since it was a data analytics consulting firm, it was hard to find women. It was maybe close to 25% of the firm. So I started Women Wednesdays which was a dedicated lunch every other Wednesday open to the women in the firm. Even the Chief People Officer, though male, took note of how it was as a woman in the firm in hopes to make a better experience for the company!

So let’s remind you I was 20 at the time. You don’t need to be 40 and high up in the ranks to start something like this: all it takes is guts to kick ass. You can do this! Make a name for yourself. The worst you get is a no, the best you get is a return offer from your internship for a full time job!
