Here are some good ways to use networking:
- talk to your school adviser about becoming involved in coop, intern, shadowing, and volunteer programs that will enable you to interact and learn to know people in your area of interest
- talk to the head of alumni relations at your school to arrange to talk to graduates working in your area of interest to see what they do, how they got there, what advice they have, and how you feel about it
- talk to your school adviser and the reference librarian at your local library to locate and attend meetings of professional organizations to which professionals in your area of interest belong, so you can mix and mingle and learn about opportunities through them.
