What I Wish I'd Known About College

Pursue internships.


Some college graduates expect to have their choice of job offers immediately after getting a diploma. It doesn't work that way. Particularly in this wintry economic climate, getting a job is less about what you know, and more about who you know. The best way to meet the people who may one day hire you is to pursue internships while in school. You can get in the door at a company you may truly want to work for after graduation, get some valuable work experience, and even get course credit – not to mention getting an edge on the competition that didn't bother interning. It's a winning situation all around.
