Networking- there is more to it than you think Advice for JP Morgan Events Ensure you leave your "comfort zone" and approach people to politely introduce yourself. If youreunsure of whos who, use the graduate recruiters to introduce you Shake hands - a firm hand shake goes a long way Dont feel nervous about approaching a group of people i.e. business representatives who arealready talking to students Ask appropriate and concise questions, and ask questions that require more than yes/no answers Be clear in your communication. The people you meet understand that you may be nervous butthey will respond favourably to someone who is genuine, interested and non-aggressive If youre not very confident, try not to attach yourself to the first person you speak to Always pay attention to the person you are speaking to and be interested in what they are saying During the event, moderation with alcohol is important - over indulgence can leave negativeimpressions It often helps to make notes following the networking sessions.
