Let's talk about networking first. Do you have a LinkedIn page? That is the best way to get start networking. Start with your contacts, then your contact's connections. If you met someone at a job fair or industry event find them on LinkedIn and send them a message. It doesn't have to be long just something that shows you enjoyed meeting the person and remembered what they said. This is the best way to start networking at school. I would also recommend joining groups that pertain to your interests and your desired work when you graduate. This would be another great way to develop your network.
I would say employers in general are looking for talent that fits their company culture. A successful candidate knows what they are looking for, if they fit the job description and knows about the company. Take your time, do your research and be prepared!
