Summer can be a great time to Network and narrow down your career goals! Even if you already have a job or internship lined up, remember networking is just as much about exploring your career curiosities and learning from direct sources. Imagine how powerful it could be to use your summer as a time to prioritize these conversations and come back in the fall with clearer career ideas of what you do and DON’T want to do!
If you are returning home over summer this can be an awesome opportunity to grab a coffee or meet with alumni and professionals in-person. Networking can happen in a lot of different mediums including via Linkedin, email or phone calls, but the impact of an in-person connection is second to none!
How do you make the most of your Networking efforts over Summer?:
- Identify companies of interest located where you’ll be over Summer
- Create weekly goals around how many connections and informational interviews you want to have a week
- Meet in-person when you can to build the strongest report
- Be in the mindset of curiosity and growth, and not just focused on landing a role
