*Don’t want to attend an event? Go anyway! Spend at least 30 minutes making the rounds, shaking hands, and being seen by as many people as possible. That way, you will show your interest in the company in a favorable light. After that time, slip out quietly. Be sure to discuss the event, thank the organizer, etc., the next day. They will appreciate it!
*Make it a habit to introduce yourself to at least five people you don’t know to build up your network or make new friends. Always focus on them (which also helps if you’re self-conscious talking about yourself.) If you want to talk with them again, ask for their card first rather than hand them yours. This is primarily “social” time, not business development time.
“Nothing great has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstances.”
