Check out Megan Bergeron’s informative post for students who may be new to the networking scene.
As scary as meeting new people sometimes can be, the biggest favor you can do for yourself is get out there and just start saying hi to everyone you meet and learn a bit about what they do. Its a great way for you to learn more about yourself and help you learn to focus on the things you’re really interested in or passionate about. At the end of the day the only person who’s going to look out for your best interests is yourself, so do yourself a favor and get out there and start making some acquaintances!
