Do not forget to ask whether it would be possible for you to shadow her for a day. You will be likely to meet lots of people and can make some positive impressions. Take stock of your strongest interests and skills and be prepared to tell people who you meet some interesting things about yourself to grab their attention.  Think of it as a 30 second commercial. You might say "I am an English major who loves to write, for example. I also love to follow fashion trends, and helped to coordinate the annual campus fashion show sponsored by my sorority." Develop targeted versions of your resume as your career goals begin to crystallize. Showcase the skills, experiences, coursework and projects most related to your emerging job objectives. Avoid generic cover letters and take the time write a targeted cover letter instead in order to make a special case for how each job matches your interests and skills.  Get feedback and advice from advisors and contacts in order to improve your documents. Always carefully grammar, spellcheck and proofread your documents

Schedule 10 hours per week for job searching while you are in school. Increase the time you spend to 20 hours a week during breaks and after graduation. Do as many internships as possible during your college years.
