“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.”

“Start exploring your options early – there are so many jobs out there that you haven’t realized existed or are options to you. Build genuine connections and ask questions – there is something to learn from everyone, especially if they have different career goals than you.

“It’s true that as a young undergraduate student, there’s ample room for experimentation. However, it’s more advisable to experiment purposefully. You could think that if I’m proficient in mathematics, then I could spend a summer doing research, and if academia doesn’t suit me, perhaps I could combine the math skill with a few courses in computer science to be a specialist in artificial intelligence (deep learning). Do you see how the experimentation is based on an assessment of your strength, and arranged with a fail-safe plan? I haven’t had much planning until I started working, but I know had I planned properly, I could have gone further in my career. Planning and experimenting are not mutually exclusive. In fact, they are complementary to each other.”

“Build thing(s) you care about, do things even if you can’t do them on your own, learn to work with others. take the courses that you’re most afraid of, do the homework, ask for help when you need it. Go to office hours and talk to your professors about things that you care about. Learn from people who you respect.”
