A Cocktail Reception Survival Guide – Networking Out of Your Comfort Zone

Date and Time:3:15 pm – 4:15 pm on Saturday, May 11
Session Type: Interactive Workshop
Location: Room 1012, Earth Sciences Building

Ever walked into a room and felt like the odd one out? When any subgroup is less than thirty percent of an overall group, they feel like outsiders – but that doesn’t mean you need to wait until you’re in the thirty percent to work the room. Learn how to initiate a conversation when everyone else is already talking to each other and discover what people want to hear in an ”elevator pitch.” Networking is an integral component of any career – it’s essential to establishing your “brand.” This interactive workshop will explore tips and tools for surviving, and thriving, outside of your comfort zone.
