I completely agree with what John and Ashley suggested but along with the extracurricular activities on campus, searching for real life experience during your Junior and Senior year, landing internships that will hopefully develop into great job opportunities, never ever forget to network, network and network during the process.
Be part of LinkedIn professional network and join groups. Search for alumni groups, companies within your career or area, your interest, or even career groups nationwide and get a glance of what is out there. What is posted, what is expected and how people are communicating.
Make yourself visible at all times. This will definitely be a strong component on your strategy.
Best of luck on your searches!!!
