network, Network, NETWORK!

Still looking for summer job? An internship? Or even that elusive permanent job after graduation? Have you been checking Help Wanteds in the newspaper and online, but haven’t found anything?  This may be why: "approximately 70-75 % of most jobs are found through networking." What’s networking?

While you're home – or away - for Spring Break, you’ll be seeing people you don't ordinarily see. Pay attention to what people are doing. Ask them questions about their jobs and how they got there. If it’s interesting to you, ask whether they could help you network to find a job or an internship.
