Alumni Advice

“Network, network, network! When starting out, utilize your existing contacts and set up informational interviews with individuals who are in a profession that you may be interested in.  For recent college graduates, the most important part is getting into an organization or industry that is of interest to you. Once you are in, work hard, be nice, find out what everyone else does, and raise your hand for additional projects and assignments.” Bryn Berglund, ’01, Political Science, VP at CBS
