Networking tips for MBA students.

From the link:

How to network during the MBA: 

  • Be friendly to everyone, because they will likely have important connections that you will not know about.
  • Keep extra business cards in your purse/wallet at all times.
  • Don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to eminent people in your field. A simple introduction can lead to a multitude of new opportunities.
  • Join LinkedIn and create a professional profile for yourself.
  • Clean-up your Facebook page to present a more professional image.
  • Attend networking events and make a point to speak to people you don’t know.
  • Be on the lookout for opportunities for your friends and colleagues. It’s good for business karma.
  • Don’t be stingy with your friendships. Be open-minded and willing to meet new people for coffees and lunches.
