Networking Game Plan
Let's be real folks, most of us who find ourselves at networking events feel at least a little awkward regardless of how 'extroverted' we may consider ourselves. From Savannah, Georgia - this week I have 3 tips on networking.
1) If you're alone, find a table to stand at. People always congregate around tables so it's a good place to be (as opposed to the corner of the room...).
2) If you're in a group, consciously invite others to join you. After all, you didn't come to a networking event to only interact with people you already know.
3) Have a plan for who you'd like to meet at the event. Before the event, do your research and potentially even set up short meetings with people at the event.
