In your second year of university your goal is to connect with peers and established professionals in your area of interest. Much of the direction you take in your final year(s) of university would depend on your understanding of the field you want to go into and what it entails to successfully secure an opportunity in that field.

 

This is also the best time to start building intentional professional relationships because you are more established as a student but do not have to deal with the pressure that comes in your final years. If you are curious about how to start doing this, the resource attached below, will guide you on how to

  2. Reach out to cold contacts for an initial conversation
  3. Prepare for and follow up from your first conversation with new professional contacts
