    Wait… “networking”… do you mean by air-voice or cabling? Don’t laugh if you want to succeed. I am being honest. Is this post some sort of a Journalism 101 thing (when real journalists used to exist) relating to relationships or a mechanical guide on Networking in a mechanical sense… cable-pullers may want to know your point as well.

There’s a lot about modern networking that we all should un-learn. Showing off your knowledge and targeting the “important” connections is the wrong approach. If you genuinely want to be an effective networker, you have to shift away from looking at these interactions as transactional. That said, it’s still hard to find people to talk to, and even harder to know to start up a conversation. I’ll give you tips that will help you work through those issues and ultimately make you more comfortable in new spaces with new people. You’ll come away from this presentation with advice you can put to use immediately.
