Meet Industry Professionals

While most companies advertise job openings online, many people learn about positions through someone they know. Networking may seem intimidating, but the process can be quite simple. Start with people you are closest to like your friends and family. Ask them if they know anyone in your industry or the company you want to work with. You’ll be amazed at how fast your network grows and how willing people are to help. Ask each person you meet for another contact. Set up appointments with your contacts to learn more about their job or company.

Remember, you aren’t asking for a job – just information and advice. Below are several resources to help you prepare.
