High school students will learn to do many things after they start college. But before they enroll in their first college courses they can begin their career exploration by networking online.
Networking online is not only important for finding internships and jobs. It is also a way that students can maintain contacts with professionals to seek advice and resources to succeed in school. Many people who have advanced in their careers and interests are quite willing to “give back” to students. They were young once, too, and would have appreciated the help, had a social media channel been available to them.
What are the first steps that high school students can take to start networking online?
I have never had to teach high school students how to “use the Web” to interact with peers Indeed, some have taught me useful techniques. But adults with the power to help, hire or recommend become a more important audience as they get older.
The best online networking tools are free, and easy to use with patience and practice. The best time to start using them is now.
