One piece of advice people give over and over again, which I can’t stress enough, is to start networking your freshman year. Many students assume their freshman and sophomore years are too early to network or attend career fairs, but that is usually the correct time to start. Gaining experience talking to faculty, joining clubs and organizations, and attending job fairs will only make you more comfortable once it’s finally time to start applying for internships your sophomore/junior year. Some people have trouble with communication and aren’t as comfortable talking to professionals when they start looking for internships during their junior/senior year. Getting a head start your freshman year is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of gaining experience and building networks that could push you ahead of another prospective student fighting for the same position.
