In my experience, many people forget that the main portion of an interview... is you! It's not about the research on the company, it's more about can you do the research and can I see myself working with you for 40-60 hours a week.

Reading isn't something that we are brought up to love. In high school we're forced to read books that we hate and it sort of ruins reading I think. But when you actually find a book that you like, it can be tough to put down, or in my case stop listening to as I listen to audiobooks. These 3 books will help you build a solid foundation for a lot of skills that you will need to know and understand in the future: The Third Door by Alex Banayan - This will help you with networking and really change your mindset around "I'm just a student, who would want to meet with me". The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau - For anyone googling "How To Make Money In College" or "I'm broke How Do I Make Money" this is a perfect book for you Money Master The Game by Tony Robbins - Learn about personal finance from Financial Titans, but in a way that the "average" person can understand. There is less financial jargon in this book and it can definitely help you in the long run. Bonus* The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris - With everything moving remote, you can use Tim's tips to begin to shape the life of your dreams.
