Referral Letter Requesting an Informational Interview
Here’s a sample referral cover letter requesting an informational interview.
Mr. C. Benjamin Stevenson
Curriculum Design Department
555 Fifth Avenue
Kansas City, MO 64100
Dear Mr. Stevenson:
Barry Bartam, whom I met at a recent meeting of the Association of Instructional Designers, suggested that I contact you about my interest in entering the instructional design field.
I’m currently a systems analyst, but I did some instructional design as the result of teaching a class at Indian Mills Community College. I am extremely intrigued by the field, especially the possibilities of Web-based instruction presents.
I would be very grateful for any suggestions you might have.
I’d like to contact you in the near future to “pick your brain.” I won’t take much of your time and will greatly appreciate any advice you can offer.
John H. Ziggy
