Most of them are feeling little bit nervous. So We suggest you that the following tips make some brave and gives you positive attitude on yourself.

Follow the tips for success for your Future:

1.  Identify the people who inspire you, and find out what makes them mark:

         Firstly the point is when someone give you a inspirational speech or give a inspired thing then you will think like that people will inspire you. If it is Positive then dont think another side just go on to that way and follw the way. Here main problem is students attract negative very speed compare to positive side. So It will take hard to inspire and follow, but Dont give up and find out yourself what makes you satisfy and gives happy for your present and Future.

2. Develop a portfolio of projects:

       Participate in every hands-on, experiential learning opportunity that a balanced schedule allows. This way, you'll have something unique to show a prospective employer (or venture capitalist) when you graduate, while other students will only be able to list their courses. In addition, you'll be far more likely to retain the knowledge you've gained in classes because you'll be applying it and, in the process, boosting your communication and interpersonal skills.

3. Learn the value of networking:

       When it comes to being a leader, whom you know is almost as important as what you know. Attend lectures on your campus and introduce yourself to the speakers. Check with your school's alumni association to get a list of alumni from your program who want to connect with undergraduates.

4. Work in teams as much as you can:

       Whether it's creating a solar-powered car, participating in a sport, or writing for the College E-paper, get involved with an organization that requires a team effort to produce great results. Throughout your career, you can be sure you'll work in teams, and the skills you develop in school will help prepare you to lead teams when you graduate.

5. Seek informal leadership roles:

       You're always a leader, whether you're officially in charge of a team or not. Sounds unreasonable, but you can lead from any position in an organization by influencing how people work together and how they make decisions. Usually people think that the leader is the president or the manager, but if you learn how to recognize and deal with various leadership styles from any position in a team, you'll be seen as a leader when you take on your first job or internship.

6. Find your weakness—and fix them:

      As with any skill, leadership needs constant improvement. When you are part of a team, try to create a way to get feedback from team members, group leaders, and professors. When you have concrete feedback on how people view you, you can work to improve your skills, including communication and leadership. Plus, you'll learn how to accept—and give—constructive criticism. That's absolutely necessary for your future career.

7. Get to know your professors:

      Develop a relationship with your professors so you feel comfortable approaching them and asking for help. Get to know one or two key professors particularly well, and turn to them for help with your homework, insight into the industry, and even job or program references.

8. Ask questions, both in class and out:

       Ask for additional examples to clarify difficult equations and concepts. More often than not, your fellow students will thank you for speaking up, and your professor will appreciate your active investment in the material.

9.  Get a summer internship:

      One of the best portfolio buildings blocks is the summer internship. Internships do more than build your resume; they demonstrate to potential employers that you can commit to a long-term role and work as part of a team.

10. Sharpen your communications skills, including conversation, writing, and presentation:

       The best and most innovative ideas in the world have no hope of growing past the drawing board if you are unable to communicate them effectively. And today, most technical communication between team members and leadership happens over email, which is a form of writing. Learn to present an argument simply and without agenda, and always read your emails through once or twice before sending.
