I would highly encourage you to build your wheel house while in college. Go for internships and summer jobs with companies you want to work and learn from. Create relationships with your instructors. Be active on Linked In, follow the companies you think you can learn from. Attend anything your college offers for meeting companies or extra lectures. Take the time to talk to anyone willing. You have lots of time to market yourself and make great connections. This is valuable. Also work with your college, use their resources to assist in your job hunt. Letting people know about you is just as important. For my last 2 jobs positions I was asked by managers to apply. Hard work is noticed! Good luck.

Clear your career goals, and prepare a good resume for yourself, choose a good word of mouth recruitment platform, with new preparation for the interview, search for some interview skills before the interview

It is true that some jobs pretty much require that you know someone high up, and that is unfortunate. However, that's not the case for every job. If you go to college, make good grades, and throw in some extracurricular activities or clubs (or a relevant part-time job), you will stand out in the application process. Also, going to college gives you time to make connections with professors who are experts in their fields.

Internships! They build a healthy relationship with a company but also allow you to gain the necessary experience to qualify for most job in your field.
