What advice do you have for people that are on their career search?
Figure out your strenghts, weaknesses, interests and priorities. Find at least one, but preferably several mentors. Network. Ask for meetings, ask for introductions.  Go to events hosted by McCombs. Talk to as many professionals as possible. Get to know them. Find out about their career path, what they do, how they genuinely feel about their role. Reflect. Evaluate. Rinse and repeat.
