Be more interested in others<br />It is unreasonable to believe that simply knowing someone with valid credentials will do your career good<br />If you know the contact more intimately than the other candidates you stand a better chance<br /> Listening to others speak about themselves is a good way of getting to know them though it can be difficult<br />Remember, if you want others to be an audience to your elevator pitch, you should return the favor.<br />
Be more concerned with collecting <br />business cards than handing them out.<br />It’s common courtesy to offer help if you expect it from someone<br />If you hand out a card without getting one in return you leave the ball in their court<br />You will have no way of contacting them again<br />
Take Notes<br />Jot down pointers listing topics you talked about<br />Follow up and remind them what you talked about<br />It’s more likely that the contact will recall you if you have this information<br />Showing them you were actually paying attention to what was being said makes a great impression <br />
