I would advice that you need to make the most of your experience on your own. No one is going to hand you experience and work on a platter - that's just how the professional, adult world is. So, it's important to take active steps on your own to make things happen for you whether that is by talking to more people, building on contacts, asking for informational interviews, or offering input/suggestion about ongoing research. Make your voice heard. It's hard but important.
