How to grow it..
LinkedIn is a great place to connect with potential mentors as well as people who might be looking to hire.
You can also visit the pages of companies that interest you and find names of people in the department where you’d like to work.
But just like blindly sharing your resume won’t guarantee results, you need to do more than send strangers invitations to connect online.
Craft a personalized message to each person explaining your goals, why you consider this person a role model, and why you deserve a half-hour of their time.
