These groups are critically important for connecting with professionals in your industry! Many offer listservs, regular meetings, and other tools for communicating with association members. Associations often discount membership fees for students, so consider joining before you graduate. Volunteering in professional associations is how you start cultivating your reputation and establishing your network. The more you do this, the more opportunities you'll encounter.
