Networking Tips

  • At networking events, always try to arrive 15 minutes early.
  • Prepare and practice your elevator pitch.
  • Classmates, family, co-workers, employers, and anyone else could be part of your professional network!
  • Small talk can include weather, food, or something pertaining to everyone. If you've met them before, you can follow up on the prior conversation.
  • To ensure you remember a possible contact, write about the conversation you shared, along with the date, and place where you met on the back of their business card.
  • Remember to contact your new networking contacts to reconnect and build the relationship.
  • Dress appropriately. Check out Wolfie's Wardrobe in Career Services if you need professional clothes!
  • Shake hands firmly. Smile. Make eye contact.
