Reflect and Follow Through
You will have done a lot of networking with other attendees and may have received information about other companies and job openings. When you leave the event remember to follow up on those leads as well.
Discuss the meetings with family or friends to keep the discussions you had fresh in your memory. Think back on your conversations and write down the things you would like to remember to focus upon in a future networking situation or interview. Write a few notes about the company, open positions, and other suggestions you may have received from recruiters or attendees.
Don’t let the connections you made go to waste. Look through your notes, think about your conversations and follow up with recruiters. If you made a commitment to an interview be sure to show up or cancel promptly. Leave the recruiter with a positive impression even if you decide the next step is not a right fit for you.
