How to Make the Most of Summer 2020: Suggestion #7

Suggestion #7: Build your professional network!

No matter what stage you’re at in your career, having a strong professional network will pay major dividends.

Not sure what area of finance interests you most?  Conduct informational interviews with professionals in a variety of areas to learn more about the day-to-day responsibilities, work-life balance, career path, company culture, and more.

Know exactly what you’re looking to do?  Conduct informational interviews with professionals working in your target roles / at your target companies.  They may be willing to keep you posted about future open positions or refer you.
