Secure an Internship

Network

  • The best place to start developing your network is with your family, friends, classmates and neighbors -- and with their family, friends, and neighbors. But don't stop there...
    • Talk to co-workers, colleagues in your industry, and those you meet at industry gatherings, such as trade shows and conferences.
    • Talk with former co-workers, bosses, and teachers.
  • The key to successful networking is deciding to put the energy needed to make it work.
    • First, you need to get organized (for example, keeping a business card file or computer database).
    • Second, you need to stay in contact (for example, through regular phone calls, email, and holiday greetings).
    • Third, you need to set goals for yourself such as 5 new contacts per week.
