What advice do you have for students during their job search?
"When searching for a job, I definitely suggest that you use your network. Talk to professors, relatives, friends, and peers about connections that they have in your field of interest. The best way to start your job search is to reach out and grow your network as much as possible. Don't be scared to take a shot in the dark and reach out to someone you may not know!"
