Conferences: Education Beyond Classes and Networking
There is third thing of importance with conferences; they are great ways to network with professionals. Conferences offer students and professionals a chance to connect with other students and professionals in your field. The bounds that are often formed at conferences can lead to job offers in later years! By the way, conferences can be expensive. Yet, some colleges and universities will pay for a few students' conference fees (speak to your department to see if they will sponsor you for a conference). Local conferences for smaller organizations are often less pricey and more manageable for student budgets so look locally if money is an issue. Take care, and goes ask your department about conference opportunities. I mean... like TODAY! :)
