Q: I’m a Top 25 law school grad, and I’m interested in working at a particular federal agency. Someone suggested that I call other grads who are working at the agency and request informational interviews rather than acknowledge directly that I am looking for a job. That seems disingenuous to me and transparently false. I believe that they would intuit that I am looking for a job and would be put off by the lack of candor. I would very much appreciate your take on this issue. Many thanks.
