    Step Four: Grow Your Network

    Now, it’s time to take your professional brand to the street, (so to speak) and start growing your network.  Many students are lost when trying to conceptualize the formation of a professional network.    In all honesty, it’s pretty simple.  Think of an onion with an immediate core of friends and family.   (Yes, you can connect to your parents on LinkedIn!)  After that, start connecting to recent alumni of Gonzaga.

    • Join LinkedIn groups for your alumni and the industry you’d like to work in.  Here are some “Zag Only” groups I’d recommend: Gonzaga Alumni Association, Gonzaga Career Center, Gonzaga University.
    • Request introductions from your connections to grow your network, gain advice, and open doors to new opportunities.
    YouTube Preview Image

    Step Three: Who do You Want to Be?

    Ah, the aged old dilemma: What do you want to be when you grow up?   You find yourself searching on job boards all around the internet with little to no luck.  Sometimes, adding a bit of focus will amp up your search by narrowing down types of industry or field you want to work in.

    Through groups and professional networking, LinkedIn can give solid guidances for “next steps” in your career.

    • Search LinkedIn to learn about career paths, industries, and geographic locations
    • Engage with industry groups to keep up on hot topics and trends
    • Visit company pages and follow companies to see who’s coming and going
