51+ Networking Mistakes
TO AVOID WHEN NETWORKING
by Noa Schecter & Bart Smith
For those of us who love to network and those who may lean more towards the shy side or even nervous when you go to any networking event, it’s a “human factor” when we say we all don’t network as well as we could. From time to time, we’re bound to make a networking mistake and ask ourselves, “Did I say the right thing?”, “Whoops, that didn’t come out right …”, or “Oh, I forgot to bring/do/say this …” That’s our point, and that’s why we wrote this book. Inside 51+ NETWORKING MISTAKES, we go into:
