Get in the mix.
If you still live on campus, you have a professional networking resource right at your fingertips—your career services center! Even if you have already graduated, it is a fantastic avenue to
discover networking events, career fairs, mentors and job openings.
Give more than you take.
Ever know someone that demands your time and attention, but doesn’t seem to reciprocate? Or perhaps someone that only pops up out of the blue when they need something? Don’t be that person in the professional world.
Relationships are two-sided, so
offer support, listen more than you talk and always stay in touch. This will come in handy when you actually do ask for something – like a reference or resume review.
