Attending a networking event can seem like a great opportunity for some, but for others, it can bring about nervous anxiety. <strong><a href="http://www.careerealism.com/quick-tips-confident-networker/" target="_blank">Careerealism</a></strong> and Adam LoDolce come to the rescue with their "5 Quick Tips for More Confident Networking."
First of all, keep things simple. A simple, "Hello, my name is _____" can work wonders.
Second, talk to several people before approaching your main target. LoDolce suggests to chat with someone as a "warm up."
Third, be aware of your body language, or your non-verbal communication. Try not to cross your arms, keep a smile and hold strong eye contact.
Fourth, learn how to ask questions. This can help break the ice.
Finally, have fun when attending a networking event. A good attitude is your asset.
