1. Join a career-oriented club or organization.

There are many different clubs and organizations that can help you understand and be involved with a career you want to pursue. These clubs can help you build a resumé and inform you about important things to know about that career. There are organizations for just about any career- journalism, marketing, engineering, etc. If there isn’t one at your school, then create one yourself!

Any time there is a career fair at your school, take advantage of the opportunity to talk to professionals that have insight on that career. They can tell you specifics about internships and you can network with people that are actually in that business.

3. Go to a school tutor.
