Networking Tips

CIO.com offers some networking tips for professionals.
“Event Networking Etiquette: A Step-by-Step Plan for Working the Room.”
Spend some time learning about the people you’ll meet.
Prepare your “elevator pitch.”
Dress professionally and appropriate for the setting.
Before going into the event room, make a trip to the restroom to check your appearance.
Take a moment to breathe and focus your confidence before you enter the room.
Look like someone you’d want to know.
Don’t make a beeline for the bar—remember why you’re there.
Hold your drink in your left hand, and always carry a cocktail napkin.
Know whom to approach, and how long to stay.
Mind your manners when meeting people.
I know that I have broken nearly every one of these rules but it’s still good advice.
