If you downloaded this guide, you probably know you have some work to do when it comes to mastering your “networking” technique. Don’t worry -- you’re not alone. Starting a conversation with someone through a computer screen? Sure, no problem — you can handle that. Walking into a room of crowded people, walking up to a stranger, and starting an intriguing corner by the snack table and pretend to be ridiculously busy on your iPhone so no one will attempt talking to you.
