Networking + Interviews

To set yourself apart from other job seekers, you need solid networking and sharp interviewing skills. Despite advances in technology and the proliferation of social media and job-posting sites, the human connection remains central to landing an internship or job.

Face-to-face contact, looking people in the eye, a firm handshake, a confident voice, and sincere tone—they all matter, especially while networking and interviewing. Paired with online contacts and connections, you’ll have a professional network you can use forever.

To help you prepare and feel comfortable with building (and using) your network as well as nailing your interviews, we’ve pulled together how-to resources, practical advice, tips, and insider knowledge from students, alumni, and experts across campus and beyond.
