The first, and easiest thing that you can do is to create a profile on the web site LinkedIn. This is a site that will allow you to quickly build a professional network, plus give you exposure to companies who use the site to proactively search for job candidates. When creating this profile, it is important to list, not only your work experience, but your education (including GPA) , leadership experience, and community/volunteer activities. There are other sites on which you can add a profile to help build your network, such as Spokeo, but LinkedIn is by far that site that most employers look to.
