Build your Connections
Networking is key. By establishing connections with professionals, you will gain insight into different career pathways. Key people to connect with include alumni, professors, and colleagues - all of whom can tell you about their career experiences. Your professional network can also refer you to possible employment opportunities or write a recommendation for you.
