What is Custom Network-building? Well, if you want to connect with people in DC or anywhere it is better not to focus on “speed” and rush your conversations or “networking” like you are looking for the exact fit that will get you your next job...so we’ll try to create a different tone. Instead, we will be helping you find the best matches for developing several great relationships ranging from political and civic to personal and professional.
At 6:30pm, after we introduce attendees around the room to each other, we will hear Tom’s thoughts about getting a job in DC and the Internet economy as well as some mentors and employers with some advice and opportunities. The participant list is still in formation.
At 7pm, we will set up some 1-on-1s with our expert guests (sign ups are first come, first serve) and also divide up by interests based on our Industry, Career Type and Field for up to 10 rounds of 5-Minute conversations. Remember to bring business cards and your resume if you would like it to be reviewed by our Resume Expert and one of the employers in attendance.
Attendees will be encouraged to come early and stay late to continue their connections. If they need a little bit of help we will have Networking Buckets where they can draw names of people with relevant expertise for their interests.
