REPE right out of UG and building a Network

Capped's picture
Rank: Senior Chimp | 28

Hi,

I got lucky enough to get a job offer at a REPE firm right out of undergrad at a small shop. I love the responsibilities and the role but have been told to now go out and look for deals. For those who started in REPE or had a small network when entering REPE what are the best ways to grow your network organically?
