Do the networking and reach out to people. I applied for a job and reached out to a Kelley alum on LinkedIn who worked for the company. He took time to talk to me on the phone and he sent my resume to HR. ‘Anything for Kelleys,’ he said. It’s hard to find people like that. Kelley alumni go out of their way to help fellow alumni shape their careers.
