Why Networking is Crucial During Space Studies

We cannot overemphasise how important networking is throughout one’s professional career. Like many students, you might not think of the fact that having a solid network before finishing your studies can dramatically improve your knowledge about the field you are interested in, as well as increase your chances of landing the right internships and future full-time jobs. If you are pursuing space studies, here are a few ideas on how to start building your network right now.

What You Will Read on SpaceBoard Radar

SpaceBoard is on a mission to reinvent the way individuals and organisations from the space industry interact. We are convinced that the development of a professional network built from the ground up to serve all space industry players will have the ability to bring our global community closer together on one powerful online environment. Today, marking another step forward towards the platform’s public release, we introduce Radar, a new outreach channel to provide quality articles reflecting SpaceBoard's take on various space topics.
