Join professional development or industry specific groups
Start building your network early by joining groups, associations or organizations in your field of study. This will help you start networking with people who are already working in those areas. Associations sponsor numerous events throughout the year that allow you to connect with your peers, meet successful professional from the field and provide skill building seminars.
