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. ]

Briefly define frictional unemployment, and how it has affected you, or anyone you know. Source:
Weegy: Frictional unemployment is a type of unemployment which occurs naturally in even the highest performing economies. In fact, this type of unemployment is often viewed as beneficial to workers and the economy. [ The existence of frictional unemployment and the closely related structural employment mean that the unemployment rate in a nation will never drop all the way to zero. Any time someone is between jobs, this is considered frictional unemployment. Some common examples include college graduates seeking their first jobs, craftspeople who are laid off between projects, and people who quit their jobs to relocate or to seek out better employment. These individuals are usually prepared for their brief periods of unemployment, and they do not stay unemployed for very long as long as the economy and the job market are stable. This type of unemployment is beneficial because it encourages people to seek out the jobs for which they are best suited, while giving companies the option to find the best employees. Without frictional unemployment, people would stay in the same jobs for life, creating a very static system which would tend to suppress innovation, and make it difficult for companies to seek out new employees who could provide useful skills and ideas in the workplace.
