Career prep for students

So this article started off today as an individual student reaching out to me via LinkedIn asking for some advice. Soon to be graduating, they wanted to know if I had any tips for someone looking to enter any kind of IT role. Their primary interests are in Project Management, Cybersecurity and Networks engineering, and thought I might have some connections they could pursue or advice I could dispense. After putting out a few pointers, I realised that it would be a lot more helpful if I committed these thoughts to something less ephemeral than a LinkedIn chat log. I hope you find some of this remotely helpful.
