“Professional and academic references are essential for job and post-graduate academic applications. During undergrad make sure you find a way to demonstrate your abilities to professors and employers/supervisors so that they know you (and remember you!), feel comfortable recommending you and are able to substantively comment on your characteristics to a future prospective employer.”
