Networking and How to Get Your Foot in the Door

Join us on Monday, September 10 from 6:30-8:00 pm at Lir for some more great networking and discussion!  This month's topic, by popular request, is how to get your foot in the door at a company where you'd like to work.  We'll talk about how to make networking connections through linkedin.com and industry events, whether at your target company or in a roundabout way through competitors or companies who work with your target company (vendors, clients).  Along with that, we'll discuss the art of informational interviewing.

We'll also discuss using existing connections in the job application process, following up on an active job application and staying in touch with your target company even if you didn't get this particular job.  Maintaining positive relations may mean they think of you in the future!

We look forward to another great event and hope to see many of you there!  As always, if you have questions, feel free to email me at [masked].

    Hi all, this seems like it would be a great event for me to attend -- the type of info you are presenting sounds like what I'm really interested to learn. However, it seems like I can't sign up for this event. Is there a way I can still attend? Please let me know.

      Martin, you cant sign up for this specific event, since it already occurred in Sept 2012. There is another event coming in I believe Oct 2013.

      Oh man... I guess it's good to pay attention to the YEAR of the event! :-( Anyway, since I lack a time-travel device, I suppose the October event will have to do! Thanks for the 411, Paul... ;-)

    This was my first networking event, so I didn't really know what to expect, but it was pretty fun. I got some business cards and met some people. I really enjoyed giving a few younger people some advice, which is what truly made it a rewarding experience for me. The organizer's seem really great and they have a lot of helpful information to share. I am very happy I went!
