What? I have to Network?! No!!

If you are one of the many students attending the Feb 16th WorkForce Career & Internship Fair (which, you probably are since EVERYBODY who knows what’s up will be there!), then you need to be ready for networking.

Yes, we said that familiar, “terrifying” word that’s been known to make college students and adults want to pout like a baby: networking.  It doesn’t matter who you are, at some point in your life networking is going to cause pesky, little butterflies in your stomach.  It’s okay.  You’re not alone.

Here is a great video to help you prepare for an evening of conversing with professionals and peers.  This TEDx speaker teaches you how to interview people . . . aka how to master conversation.  If, after watching the entire video, you are still feeling a bit queasy at the thought of striking up conversations with strangers, contact us!  We’d love to talk to you about networking and help you prepare.

“If you don’t know. Say you don’t know.”  “Be brief.”  “Be interested in other people.”
