Making the Most of Networking Receptions (networking tips!)
Structure of Networking Receptions
we like our events to be open and welcoming, we do create a little
structure to make the events as effective as possible for everyone. At
the beginning of the program, we allow all attendees to briefly
introduce themselves and explain why they are attending, so that you
can place a name with the face. Then we begin the speed networking
portion for the next hour, in which you can meet several people whom
you may not have been able to speak with had you been simply milling
around. After that, all attendees spend an open 45 minutes meeting
additional people. Because of this structure and the two-hour time
frame of the events, we strongly encourage everyone to arrive promptly to the event so we can begin the program on time.
Light refreshments will be served during the event. If you’re really hungry, make sure you grab some dinner before you go.
What to Wear
encourage all guests to dress professionally, as if you were going on a
job interview. Some of the people you will be meeting could be your
next employer, so making a great first impression is key to your future
