“The best advice I can give is get involved, and get involved in depth versus breadth.

I was so nervous, but once you get into the groove of it you realize they can teach you so much. I was asked for an interview for a summer internship at Burlington at that event. Networking isn’t that difficult; everyone’s really nice. You just have to be confident. And that’s how I set up my entire summer from that – going to that event for 20 minutes."
