Networking for the first Job
I am a senior in college and have been doing a fair amount of networking. My strategy has been to cold email people asking for advice, then ask if there's anyone in their firm I could talk to and hoping that I build the start of a relationship. So far, my conversations have all been one-offs and felt somewhat pointless aside from the insight and advice I've gained. Should I continue with this strategy of talking to people, or should I be more direct about the fact I'm networking with the intention of getting a job? Any insight or advice is appreciated.
