Career Quick Tip, Networking: Building Relationships
The better mutually beneficial relationship you have built, the more likely that person will recommend you, share important information with you, or think about you when an exciting new opportunity comes up. When you introduce yourself to others, have two or more questions prepared; one that helps you get to know the person better (i.e. “What is an exciting project you have recently been involved with?”), and one that asks what you want to know (i.e. “What types of career options are available in your field?”). You can practice these questions with your instructors. They are great networking resources!

Friendly password change reminder from IT
When you change your Aims password, be sure to check any mobile devices that you may have connected to the Aims wireless networks. You will need to change your password on the device’s connection information as well. The password is stored on your device and is not automatically updated when you change your Aims password at https://identity.aims.edu.
If you don’t change your password on the mobile device, your account may get “locked” because the phone is sending an incorrect password and repeatedly trying to connect to the wireless network.
