Just because you are a student does not mean that you can not have an airtight networking game! First things first, get professional business cards along with a business card holder. Use the example above as a reference. Make your card a focal point in conversations. Draw upon different aspects of your course, concentration, major or what you are currently studying. Include internship, co-op or useful job experiences in your discussion. This is a super way to break the ice and uncover shared interests.

It gives me great pleasure to announce (along with others) the grand opening of the Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, GA. I had a chance to take a sneak peak of the museum and exhibits, 2 weeks ago. Needless to say, I was fascinated by the visual, audio and touch components. The intent was to not only educate visitors on the history of the civil rights movement in the South, but to also bring awareness to human rights issues around the world. This is one must see attraction for the Summer time!
