Build a list of contacts
Put any professionals who you know on the list. Make sure to add new contacts to the list and update as necessary.

Meet new people
Attend Career Fairs and other events where professionals will be in attendance. Don't be afraid to ask for their contact information. For a list of upcoming BYU fairs and events, visit ucs.byu.edu/career-fair-main-page​.

Get involved                                                                                                                                                                                           Join clubs or associations on campus and take an active role.

Every few weeks send an email and keep your contacts up to date on any achievements. Ask for advice and help with questions you have.

Use the BYU Alumni website - Alumnicareers.byu.edu
Find alumni with careers similar to your goals. Ask them for information on that career, but don't ask for an internship or a job right away. Build a relationship first. You can also find and contact BYU Alumni through the university's official LinkedIn page.
