Who you know...
Rob at BusinessPundit.com has a great post on How to Get Ahead in the Modern Business World.
I applied every semester for two years. Still nothing. ... Two years of following the rules got me nowhere. One hour of meeting with a real engineer got me what I wanted. He never asked for my resume. Never asked about GPA. Never asked anything except whether or not I wanted the position. It was my first taste of a major life lesson - it's who you know, not what you know.
