Hyunju –------ Building relationships is the hard part that hinders me from reaching out. I think this prompt echoes a lot of what a lot of students are struggling about. Concept of networking is hard, I remember asking my professor about this It's hard to get the full picture of networking (from sending out a LinkedIn request, doing informational interviews, maintaining relationships), international background-- unsure about getting referrals, getting helped, mentoring etc.

Solomon —-------- I sometimes don’t know the right questions to ask a mentor that he/she will find reasonable. If they won’t think of me as ignorant lol. Lack of guidelines as to what are the right knowledge to seek from that professional because I haven’t been in the practical world yet.

Unfortunately I have tried to do this via other professional applications but it doesn’t really help. Professionals on LinkedIn for example hardly have your time, well it isn’t for that purpose I guess.
