What are some of the best ways to network as a student?
I am attempting to make my presence known, I guess, outside of my university and connect with different groups that I think perhaps I would like to work for. What are some of the best ways to do this? Are there specific events that would be better for me as an environmental science major? Is networking outside of your preferred field okay? Thank you!

It is absolutely fine to network outside of your field. Networking is critical to be successful in whatever you choose to do personally and professionally. Some of my most meaningful relationships have been through networking. Volunteer events can open doors to networking for you. Find environmental volunteer events on websites such as volunteermatch.org to expand your network and open up potential opportunities. Good luck with building your network!
My advice would be to A. Join linked in if you haven’t yet and B. start applying for internships at companies that interest you. The best way to start building out of school connections is to get out into the workforce. Networking is key and it’s how I have gotten every position I’ve ever held.
