Informational interviews with a practicing professional can help inform your decision about entering an industry or career for any profession.
You learn more about a profession in an informational interview than reading about it. You can get some insight into their motivations for deciding to become a PA, what they did for the admissions process to stand out, and how they went through PA school. You can also choose to focus questions on different aspects of working as a PA – benefits, challenges.
These informational interviews provide personal insight, or an “insider’s view” of what is going on with the PA profession on what it is really like to be a PA.
You can also use what you learn during the informational interviewer as part of your admissions process (whether supplementary application or interview).
PA Informational Interviewers last 15-30 minutes, and are a lot easier to obtain than PA shadowing experiences in Canada.
