Sample Telephone Script  for Requesting an Informational Interview

"Hello. My name is Iggy Lion and I'm a junior majoring in English at Loyola Marymount University. Is this a good time for you to talk briefly? I heard you speak at an event sponsored by Career and Professional Development last semester. Although I am not currently looking for a job, I have become very interested in public relations and would like to learn more about the field. Would it be possible to schedule 20 to 30 minutes with you at your convenience to ask a few questions and get your advice on how best to prepare to enter the field?"
