For fellow college students, I’m sure you’ve heard this advice: “You need to network.”
If the idea of cold-emailing industry professionals scares you, there are so many other ways to network during your day-to-day life (and chances are, you’re already doing them). For example:

• Going to office hours
• Asking guest speakers questions
• Joining student organizations
Just be engaged and give people a reason to remember you. Plus, once the hard part is done, you can always connect on LinkedIn and keep the conversation going.
