Networking is so important. But honestly not enough of us do it unless we find ourselves without a job and we have no choice. It’s uncomfortable, awkward and the reason it’s uncomfortable and awkward is because we’re not good at small talk. It’s hard and aside from commenting on the weather we don’t have much to say. But don’t worry we’ve got you covered. We just put together this list for an event we did with Girl Creative and we have to admit they’re pretty good so we’re sharing them with you here. So read on, pick your favorites and Happy Networking!
