As you wrap up the fall semester with exams, papers and presentations, consider taking the time to maximize your winter break to include networking. Your personal network of family and friends can often lead to contacts for summer internships or possible leads for your job search.

You may be surprised by the network of contacts your family might have and do not forget your friend’s parents too. Check out this Jobipedia article to start taking advantage of your winter break! And don’t forget, we would love to hear about it!
