Start a cover letter in which you ask for an informational interview with a little background. Provide the person you are writing with enough information so that they can understand why you want to learn more about a business or field.
It is a good idea to show that you have done your research. Most professionals will appreciate any indication that you have tried to learn all you can about a company or industry from the resources to which you have access. Conclude your cover letter with a plan to follow up on scheduling the interview. You might also ask for a referral to someone else at their company or in their profession who may be able to provide professional insight and advice.
