It’s great if you have friends or relatives who are employed in a field that interests you, but a list of such people may be short.



Add other acquaintances to the list. Have a goal of creating a list of 50 contacts made up of personal acquaintances, your professors, academic advisors, Career Services staff members, and even classmates. Remember, each of those people know 2-3 other people who could be a valuable resource in your job search process.
