The Value of Networking

Last night MNPR Blog held a small happy hour event at Kip's Irish Pub in St. Louis Park. It was fun to get together with people that understand PR and are looking to develop in their careers.

A few in attendance had never been to a networking event before and were uncertain about the value, however in the current economic climate they were looking to make connections and maybe find a job. Truthfully without networking I wouldn't be in my current position at Risdall McKinney.
  1. Utilize Social Media
  2. Use being shy to your advantage
  3. Set networking goals
  4. Know when to speak up  
  5. Smile

Hope to see you all at Alphabet Bash tomorrow where we can practice our networking skills together.
