Networking Over Winter Break

 Whether you're thinking about a summer job, an internship, or a job after graduation, it's clear that networking can make a difference in landing the position you want.

While you're home for Winter Break and seeing people you don't ordinarily see, pay attention to what people are doing and whether they could help you secure a spot, or if they can put you in contact with someone else who could. Work Your Contacts! If you are thinking about arranging an Informational Interview with someone who works in a field you may be interested in, check out this page for help on how to go about it and how to prepare, as well as ideas for questions and do's and don'ts.

Follow this link for some tips on career networking for college students, where they say that "approximately 70-75 % of most jobs are found through networking."
