About This Event

Informational interviews are common practice in today’s economy and many career guides sing of their importance; however, it is hard to find direction on how to find the right people to talk to, what to say when you get in the room, and how to make sure you get the information you need.

Informational interviews are often pitched as a covert interview, with little emphasis on the information you can gain. However, this mindset guarantees that you will miss a valuable opportunity to ask poignant questions that will help you discover, and navigate, the landscape of your chosen field. With proper execution, you can obtain the access capital you need to understand an industry that might otherwise feel closed-off, chaotic and overwhelming.

This free workshop will teach you an incredibly simple two-step process to help you find and approach the right connectors, get their ear to take the meeting, and prepare for the meeting so that you gain the insider insight you need to land that dream job. After all, career success is the product of relationship building and negotiating with the individuals who hold the opportunities critical to your success.

About the Expert

Justin Wright Photo

Chief Executive Officer,
Habitus Incorporated

Justin Wright is an experienced trainer, coach and mediator. End the Hunt teaches a method of negotiating for work that Justin discovered through his own process of career development with mentorship from several professionals generous enough to give him their time and advice. Under their mentorship, Justin applied End the Hunt's methodology to achieve success as a freelance Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) practitioner. He has run trainings for clients in Spain, Tajikistan, Turkey, Mexico, and across the US. Justin has served as a teaching assistant for seminars at Harvard Law School’s Program on Negotiation, taught mediation practicums at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and served as a guest lecturer at Boston University Business School. Applying the same principles that End the Hunt teaches, he was able to generate these opportunities without any prior connection to these universities. Today, Justin works as a mediator, facilitator, and negotiation trainer/coach with students, activists and corporate clients, providing them with the tools to meet their most important goals, resolve conflict, improve communication and preserve key relationships. While working with diverse clients, Justin is particularly passionate about providing services to individuals and organizations pursuing missions of Sustainability, Corporate Social Responsibility and Social Entrepreneurship.
