When I got started in research it was with a professor/mentor that was looking for an assistant. I didn't have experience either, but I was curious. Typically, a new researcher will start off with tasks that you already do as a student - reviewing literature to summarize the main points, doing basic data analysis, and requesting information via phone/email contact. If you don't already know someone that is looking for an assistant, you could try asking to join a research team as a volunteer or asking a professor if they could put you in touch with one of their colleagues that might need some help with a project. Also, if your school has TAs you could try working as a TA to develop a relationship with a professor and then, hopefully, transition into a research role. This worked for my wife in undergrad.
Zachary recommends the following next steps:
- Put together a resume
- Outline your goals for the experience so you can assess opportunities to see if you're going to get what you're looking for
- Start doing some research on your chosen areas of interest on your own to get familiar with current trends. You could even go as far as compiling a literature review for practice.
