What is professional development? Think of professional development as investing in yourself by trying new opportunities to learn and grow as an individual.
Your professional development is evolving and moving pieces over and over again, and most of all, it is yours!
Networking is your opportunity to build meaningful connections. Keep in touch with the connections you make along the way – these can be faculty you engage during office hours, staff who help you make decisions, employers you meet on campus, and alumni you reach out to for guidance. These individuals will be transformative to your future success.
LinkedIn is a great way to begin developing your network online. Use these tips to polish your LinkedIn profile.
Do you have any personal connections to this industry? If not, ask your friends, family, and faculty — you’ll be surprised how easy it is to find someone working in your industry of interest!
