Fall Update

At SPS this fall, all courses, other than pre-established online courses, will be offered face-to-face in our New York City classrooms. Some of these face-to-face courses will be offered in the HyFlex format to ensure that all of our students can make progress toward their degree requirements, if faced with delays due to student visas or vaccination effectiveness wait times.

Informational Interviews

Informational interviews are a way to get the inside scoop on an organization and learn how people managed their careers to land a job in that organization.

This is done by speaking with someone who works for an employer that you are interested in working for. In this dialogue, you can learn about company culture, job roles, industry trends and how they got their job and the necessary skills. An essential part of networking, informational interviews build up your knowledge base and your network. Then if opportunities arise you increase your likelihood of being noticed by an employer by using the knowledge gained in informational interviews to adapt your resume and cover letter and, to build internal connections who might be willing to refer you for jobs.
