Have you been working a while? If so, what advise do you have for first job seekers? Are you looking for your first job, what questions do you have?

I have a question about finding a first job. What are some good ways/useful tools to make connections in the field I want to work in?

Katherine that’s a great question. My advice is to look for professional associations in the field you’re interested in and see if they have local events that you can attend. Then use these events as an opportunity to network and make connections. On the RePicture.com Organization page https://www.repicture.com/explorer/org we have about 20 common engineering associations. Just do a key word search on “professional association”. Many of them have local chapter events. Depending on your field of interest, also consider joining organizations like Engineers in Action https://www.repicture.com/companyprofile/engineers-in-action and Engineers Without Borders where you can volunteer with, and get to know, engineering professionals.
