    Hi, Im new

    Great site for the IT community to get involved with.

    Im studying for a masters in computer science right now, hoping to get into networking when I graduate.

    Any advice on getting a foot in the door will be greatly apreciated.

    Welcome!

    Do you have any real-world IT experience yet? If not, you should do everything you can to build business IT experience before you graduate. To get into networking, you'll need experience, first and foremost. :)

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    I agree with BM, you may find yourself starting off in an entry position in your first IT job.

    Welcome... I guess I can be a part of the welcoming committee now. :)

    As far as getting experience, many colleges around here are always looking for interns to do entry level work. It's a good jumping on point for IT major's to start to get hands on experience.
