Get involved on campus
There are many business-oriented student groups on campus that exist to help members learn skills specific related to business careers, and because many groups partner with potential employers, you may be able to learn about exciting job opportunities even before graduation. Take it a step further and pursue leadership positions within those organizations to enhance your skills and your resume. Learn more about student organizations and professional associations here.
Pick up a new language
Learning a second language can make you more marketable to internationally based companies or those that work with international clients.
LinkedIn is heavily used by organizations to post job opportunities, grow visibility of their organization, network and share industry trends. Because businesses so heavily use LinkedIn, it is almost expected that will have an up-to-date and professional profile. Plus, if you’re thinking of starting your own venture, consider using LinkedIn as a way to market yourself and your business.
Grow your network
Business relies on successful partnerships and fostering relationships with clients, colleagues and community members. Attend networking events in your city to make new professional connections and build upon your communication skills.
