My wife hates the idea of going to events, pretending to be enthusiastic and painfully going through #smalltalk. I on the other end am happy to hop from one flower to another.
At the Advocate! Conference couple of weeks ago, I got to use the Attendee Interactive app and creeped on who was going to be there.
#IamAlnoor #LinkedInTips to survive these events.
Before the party –
Cultivate a social media presence
Make new connections online
Build a relationship
Get the conversation going – this is where I see many fail
Engage with conference-goers posts and share your thoughts = credibility
At the party –
Get an accountability partner to help you set a target of meeting at least two new people
Take time off
Be kind to yourself
Have an exit strategy
Yes, you too can get a job during the #holidayseason
