“Take time to explore. Talk to people about what they do and why they do it and how they got there.”
“Get a good idea of the different paths you can take! There isn't just one option, no matter what you get your degree in.”
“Don't be afraid to ask questions—talk to alumni, parents, friends of your parents—to see what opinions, knowledge and ideas they have.”
“If I had to do it over again, I’d work harder to forge connections in the industries I was interested in rather than troll the internet for open positions. The latter is productive, but establishing a contact that can look out for you is invaluable.”
“Do not underestimate the power of networking. Network as much as possible. It's all about networking.”
“Network, network, network. Knowing somebody can (and does) make all the difference when applying for positions.”
