How to act at networking events and when to make an accident at work claim
Networking events are some of the most important events you can attend when you are looking to make your way up the career ladder. Networking is the very best way for you to get where you want to be in the shortest time possible.
As important as it is that you have qualifications and experience, and that you are prepared to work hard, it is far more important that you know the right people so that they can get to know you and decide that you would be an asset to their companies. If you want to meet a good number of people at once, a networking event is the best way for you to go.
- Stay professional. Remember that although the ideal of networking is essentially to be social, you need to be social in a very different way from when you are with friends and family. Try not to allow these people to see you in any other persona than a professional one.
- Be confident. No one wants to employ someone who is shy and unassuming, as it is expected that they won’t be able to function very well in the business world. You are much better off coming across as confident and forthright when you meet these people.
- Sell yourself. Be friendly and listen to what everyone has to say, whilst at the same time using these opportunities to sell yourself as a potential employee. This situation is far more relaxed than an interview, so you can be more yourself than you would otherwise be, but you should still be aware that these people have the power to move your career forward.
- Don’t be pushy. Whether you are in the market for a job or not, being faced with someone that you really respect in a career that you desperately want could make you act in a forceful way. Make an impact, but then let this person come to you – don’t push.
