Does the thought of going to an industry event completely terrify you?
Chances are you’re probably not quite equipped with the ‘know-how’ on networking. We work in an industry where building solid relationships goes a long way. You never know when a good connection will come in handy… and one day, they may need you too!
So, you gotta make time to build a good network – and networking, especially when you’re new to the industry can be daunting. Maybe you’re shy, or you're not a fan of small talk or maybe every time someone talks to you, your mind goes blank and you just can’t think of what to say… it happens.
Networking does not come naturally to most people BUT with a little bit of practice and a few handy tips, you’ll get in the grove and before you know it, the new kid on the block is finger pointing and high five-ing everyone she/he meets!
