Building a Network as an Econ major in Arts and Sciences
I'm a rising sophomore. My school's business school is a target. However, I'm a Econ major in Arts and Sciences. I'm not sure how to approach the whole recruiting and networking side of things. B-school kids and Arts and Sciences kids alike tell me that going to corporate presentations and career fairs is awkward and sometimes hopeless because the events are almost always 95% B-school students and with all the kids there, the recruiters sometimes scoff at Econ Arts and Sciences students.
So how should I network and effectively get my resume out there? Would cold-emailing or reaching out to bank execs work and alumni work? Or should I do something else? Suggestions appreciated.
Anyone with experience being in this situation?
