Thoughtfully choose what networking events to attend, and look for events that have a true purpose other than just general networking. If you’re purely attending an event to get a few cards, you may only find limited success. Some of our greatest successes from events have been those that have an interesting speaker or panel that will attract a wide variety of attendees. Plus, discussing the presentation that you just heard can make for an easy conversation starter!
