Tips to network
Networking. You’ll probably do more of it in college than you will the rest of your life. It’s important to know how to do it well.
Create and practice a 30 second commercial that will highlight the most important part of your educational and professional background. Have questions prepared for your areas of interests. Dress appropriately, and remember, you can never have too many resumes on hand.
Be friendly, professional and confident when talking to other professionals. Research organizations they are associated with, and make notes on advice and things they say.
Connect on LinkedIn or send a follow-up email. There is no shame in making sure a person remembers your name and skillset.
