What are some of the pros and cons of informational interviewing?
Some of the pros of informational interviewing is the information that is learned will probably be accurate and from a trusted source. In this way, a person can learn what the job actually entails on a day to day basis, instead of just ideals. [ A person can learn a lot about how the company actually runs internally as well. The cons are the information may not be 100 percent truthful. As the
book says that people like to talk about themselves, I do believe they do, but I also believe people like to stretch the truth more often then not. The information may be biased as to how that particular employee feels about the company, as well as the possibility that the answers are filtered for the company's sake. I think the benefits of the informational interview will rely solely on the person being interviewed. Obstacles that could occur in conducting an informational interview could be finding an employee that would take the time to do it, especially in high powered industries and jobs. Preparation for an informational interview should first be a bit of initial research on the company to show your interest in them and to impress the employers with your research. A list of questions and information that a person is interested in learning about the subject should also be thought about and prepared before the meeting. It would also be wise to have a networking card made up and ready, as well a resume to leave with the company's representative. ]

Why do we, as individuals, need goals?
Question
Updated 7/16/2012 8:32:23 AM
1 Answer/Comment
In absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.

Would you agree that ethical business practices can increase the bottom line and lead to the long term profitability of a business and if so, why?
Weegy: Executive Summary • Business ethics focuses on identifying the moral standards of right and wrong as they apply to behavior within and across business institutions and other related organizations. • Corporations sometimes behave unethically, [ having a harmful effect on people or the environment. • Unethical behavior is typically not caused by a single “bad apple,” but is a result of complex interactions between individuals, groups, and organizational cultures. • Ethical behavior can be defined either as behavior that maximizes happiness and minimizes harm or as behavior that is motivated by principles of duty. • While behaving unethically may have some short-term benefit for a company, in the long term it will harm stakeholder support. • Long-term sustainability comes from concentrating on the triple bottom line: that is, social, environmental, and financial performance (Elkington, 1998). Introduction Look in the newspaper on virtually any day of the week and you will find at least one business scandal in which a corporation appears to have violated the rules or standards of behavior generally accepted by society. Company finances have been manipulated in order to show a better balance sheet than actually exists, toxic waste has been allowed to flow into a river, bribes have been paid to secure a business deal, child labor has been used to assemble a product, discriminatory practices have prevented the employment or promotion of members of a particular group. When businesses behave unethically, they act in ways that have a harmful effect on others and in ways that are morally unacceptable to the larger community. This is very serious because corporate power and impact are increasing as corporations become larger (indeed, global) and as profit-making concerns take over functions that were once publicly controlled, such as the railroads, water utilities, and healthcare. ] User: Would you agree that ethical business practices can increase the bottom line ...
