Interacting with others who have similar interests or career goals to develop professional contacts.


  • You create a community of long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships

  • Access to new opportunities

  • Able to exchange ideas

  • Mentorships


  • Connect with your professors and peers

  • Tap into your school's alumni network

  • Tap into your school's career resource office

  • Professional conferences (a conference opportunity is listed below)

  • Professional social media such as LinkedIn

Where to start:

Do not forget your classmates, peers, friends, and family are great starting points when building your network!
