It seems like everyone is talking about networking lately – and for good reason. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 70% of jobs are found through networking. The number might be even higher for internship opportunities since many employers create internship positions to help a student gain experience (especially a student they know).
I will be the first to admit that I am not the typical DelVal student. As a sophomore, I’ve thrown quite a few people through a loop when I mention my career plan. There are plenty of Business Administration students here, but not many of them are looking for a career managing concert venues and bands. But I am- and DelVal has helped me pursue my goals by still managing to find hands-on experiences for their atypical students.
