Top Tip to Mentees: 

There is a lot of advice I could give but I will stick to a couple things.  To the incoming freshman, I would tell them to make friends with other Krannert students. They will soon begin to realize that their classes are continuously with the same people and having friends to work with in your classes can be extremely helpful. Another thing I would tell them is to start going to career fairs and networking right away. Most companies don't want freshman interns but just going to the fairs and talking to different companies will give you experience. It will also show the recruiters you are interested and you will be a familiar face each time you come back. This will put you ahead of the other students when you are experienced enough for that internship.
