I learned that it is so important to network! Making connections with the people around you is so beneficial and is way easier than you think!
I found that the career advice that I received while in the program was the most helpful for me. The two advisors, Kelsey and Wendy, are amazing assets. I had access to many career building tools, like having my resume revamped and being allowed to use the global awareness site through KU. Career planning is important, and I think that too many people wait until after they graduate to start figuring it out.
Do not be afraid to network, this is the most effective way to make connections necessary to find a job or internship after graduation.
