Also check out schools you you are interested in attending to find out what kind of projects they do related to space or student organizations that might exist there. An example would be https://seds.org/ (Students for the Exploration and Development of Space). Many of these student groups are involved in projects sponsored by NASA that provide you access to current or former engineers and astronauts that worked for the space agency. Its a good way to find others interested in space and a career there while building a network.

Hi Gabriel - An additional idea: use LinkedIn or your career center to find alumni from your college that work at NASA. Connect with them and ask questions, build a relationship, and they can help give you some inside scoop!
