I think the most important thing is to continue to stay in touch and network through those you know to continue to grow your contacts in the field. I would suggest attending some journalism conferences. I believe they offer them everywhere and many of them specialize in a specific area of journalism so find an area you enjoy. For example I went to sports marketing and sports broadcasting conferences and they offer great networking opportunities. Also linkedin and other social networks such as Facebook and twitter allow you to stay in touch with your professional contacts as well. Hope this helps a little bit. Good luck!
