Format: Paperback
I've been networking for my business for nearly 20 years, and still came away with tips and ideas from Sandy's book that I found smart and useful. From her suggestions for conversation "opening" questions, to language around offers to help others first, to looking at the online activities of 3 current contacts--and reaching out to them to offer encouragement, to helpful samples of post-event follow up and introductions ("just wanted to connect two people I respect a lot, hoping it helps everybody in the long run"), to how to host a PIF party ... All are offered clearly, easy to follow, that most people can easily say "Yes, I can do that!" Very encouraging.

This is a great read for anyone who wants to really network and come from a place of service. This concise, no-nonsense book helps you prepare for an event (hint: you don't just show up without a plan), navigate the event itself (no looking over other people's shoulders while they talk to you), and great tips on how to appropriately follow up (yes you have to follow up). She even gives great examples of follow-up emails as well as how to introduce people you are connecting. The last chapter explains how she created, and how you can create too, your own Pay It Forward networking events which is a brilliant idea to create meaningful networking events with like-minded, mindful folks.

This little gem is clear, easy to follow and full of concrete "do-able" actions to get the most out of any networking experience. It's always best to have a clear picture of what you want to accomplish at a networking event (or the grocery store) and this book will help you do that. And I love the "it's not all about you" message; networking is about helping others, as well as for looking for work opportunities.

I read the whole thing flying from the West Coast to the East. When I got back to my office, I immediately changed some things on my LinkedIn page. Get this book.

This is a must have book for any professional. Period. There is so much value in networking (on and offline) that it's impossible to avoid these events.

What used to be a dread can be an enjoyable experience after reading Sandy's book. As a goal oriented person, I enjoyed having things to accomplish while I am there!

I just finished reading "I'm at a Networking Event - Now What?" and I have to say, wow, what a book. I network a lot anyway but this little gem showed me how to network better.

Now I know what to do when someone tells me what they are looking for and how I can help them. Because paying it forward is what life is all about now.

If you're a job seeker and you're struggling with social anxiety to enter a room of strangers, read Sandy Jones-Kaminski's terrific book to turn them into your new best friends and allies.

I'd write a longer review but I have an event to go to so I can practice what I learned!
