In order for one to be successful in this world one requires a solid connection with the participants of one's field of study. Unfortunately, college freshman don't have many professional connections to guide them through the vicissitudes of life. I know internships are vital in order to gain work experience. Although, there aren't many internships for college freshman. Are there any programs or certifiable classes that I may be able to join so I can achieve work experience at this early level? What would you do / what did you to obtain a professional career after college?
