What are some of the best ways to network as a student?

Asked Ashville, Ohio

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!

Hi Ashley, It's great that you're thinking of getting started early with networking. It's quite alright to network outside your field/major. Any group that supports Women in STEAM fields will introduce you to all sorts of people in many different fields. Finding local groups that support various environmental causes is a great way to network and learn about job opportunities. Check related local MeetUps and volunteer opportunities, which I've found to be excellent for networking. Examples that may help spark other ideas: http://www.earthdaycolumbus.org/volunteer-sites, https://www.columbus.gov/getgreen/Get-Involved/, https://columbusaudubon.org/education-pages/ecoweekend-main/
