How do I prepare for a networking event?
Tonight, I may stop at a women's conference and seminar which grants women professionals (employed or not) a chance to network and gain knowledge of how to go from surviving the workplace to thriving and achieving higher goals and positions. It is going to be my first networking event, professionally. Any pointers for how I should prepare for this event? I know I should probably have business cards. But my cards are kind of old, I need new ones. How should I go about approaching people if there are job openings at their companies? Since I am not currently working. Thanks.
