This article aims to provide some ideas and tools to help new and current students.
If networking isn’t your thing, you’re definitely not alone. If it helps, put on a hat or hoodie when typing out an invite or introductory email. If you’re going to an event, don’t be afraid to go alone. Not knowing anyone else puts you in a much more likely scenario to meeting new people than clinging to someone else. Pretend you’re the host of the event and approach people and conversations appropriately.
If you do see someone you know, try not to gravitate to them the whole time. Don’t be afraid to add people on to LinkedIn that you’ve met. Always add a note when you invite someone - and try to add a follow up for a coffee.
While there are an enormous amount of tips out there, most of the time, it’s going to involve rolling up the sleeves and grinding away at it.
