We've all heard it. But how do I do it?
I'm a Senior undergrad History major (w/ courses in Geog. and Environmental Studies, Minor in Planning - no undergrad major offered). I don't have major connections in the field; my friends aren't "connected" yet either. I've thought of professors... and my career counselor wants me to contact anyone in the alumni connection database (people who have volunteered to help students) in a government job. One out of the 8 is a planner.
I'm also looking at jobs over a sizeable geographic area (basically, East Coast from NY to NC) - how do I "network" with people in areas I am not from but would be interested in relocating to?
Thanks for your advice!
