What are your top 3 networking tips?

•Mind your manners – Networking might have it’s own additional set of rules and customs, but all of society’s normal, mannerly expectations still apply. Listen more than you talk, be thoughtful in your interactions and generous with your time when you can. Being perceived as professionally weak is something to avoid, but that never happens as a result of having good manners.

•Elevator pitches still matter -There will always be a reason to sell what you do in a very short window of time. It will always play in your favour if you maintain the ability to do that in a way that manages to cover who you are, what you do, and why it’s relevant. Remain casual and efficient, not forced or pushy. You should repeatably practice ahead of time and, periodically update your pitch.

•Play to your weaknesses. There are loads of apps and online/mobile tools that can bolster your networking arsenal. For example, if you know you’re prone to having a memory lapse about following up with new contacts, plan ahead. Set an alarm to go off the following week right when you first enter that person’s contact info into your mobile.
