What is the potential to make connections for a future career at a private university verses a large public university?

I am a Junior at a St. Louis area high school looking at my options for colleges. To help me decide where to go if I am accepted I am looking for feedback regarding connections available at smaller private universities. I am a person who gets along with pretty much everyone and will have no issues making connections if they are available. #college #connections #private-school #public-school #stl #networking #college-bound

How do you start networking?

Hi, I have a few questions regarding how to go about networking. From what I understand the practice of networking is about discussing career opportunities with people who are involved in the fields that interest you or just to help you get your foot in the door for finding a job. How do you find these kinds of conversations exactly? Does it happen naturally, over time, with the social connections that you develop or do you need to go out of your way to find certain people that can help you out in the career department? Are there certain groups, classes or events that I can attend specifically for networking? So, am I correct in what I think networking is all about? If so, what is your advice on how I go about networking? Appreciate any feedback you can give me. #networking #career-advice #social-networking #connections #finding-a-career #general-career-questions

How do you seek contacts in a chosen career path and how does it benefit you?

I am planning to enter the field of educational entrepreneurship and I don't know where to find people who have already chosen this field. I know there are experts on entrepreneurship and education reform but they seem so anonymous and/or distant from a high school student like myself. How much can I "bug" these professionals for advice and how likely is it to build a career-long connection with these like-minded forerunners? #education #entrepreneurship #connections
