Why explore professional organizations?
- Career research: Professional associations and publications are often the best sources of information about the current state of any field, possible career paths and qualifications.
- Networking: Use the association's membership directory to locate professionals. Once you've read about a career, conducting informational interviews of professionals will give you a first-hand account of an occupation's rewards, requirements, and frustrations. Informational interviews can sometimes open doors to internship experiences!
- Join the organization if you'll get to network with other students interested in the field, with professionals, or if it has other attractive benefits.
