You are off to a great start! Informational interviews are great to do because it gives you insight and a clear visual of a your desired career, position, or company to determine that it is right for you. Some of the questions that you can ask during an informational interview are the following: 1) Can you tell me a bit about your career path and what led you to the role you're in today? 2) What does a work day look like for you? 3) What do you enjoy most about the work you do? / What are you most excited about right now? 4) What skills do you think are most important for someone interested in a job like yours? 5) Do you have any recommendations for other people I should talk to or other resources I should explore?
I hope this information helps you on your journey.
