Career development is a social thing - it's who you know and who knows you. You learn about careers, companies and job openings through people.
Also, employers are much more likely to offer you a job when someone refers you. Here is how to get started:
Step 1 - Create a LinkedIn profile and join the LinkedIn Western Oregon University Alumni group.
It's important to have a full profile, including a photo. A minimal profile is less professional.
Step 2 - Don't know anyone in your field or company of interest? Conduct an Informational Interview. Read this informational interviewing packet and complete the informational interview worksheet
