Questions To Ask At A Networking Meeting

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

Much has been written about how to expand your contact network, how to set-up a networking meeting, and how to structure the networking discussion. No matter how strictly you follow the meeting agenda, however, there should be time left for “general conversation.” This is how you will build rapport and learn a great deal from your networking partner. So, what sorts of topics should you focus on, and what kinds of questions should you ask?

In addition to preparing questions to ask your networking partner, be prepared to answer her questions as well. Although a networking meeting is NOT a job interview, the contact may have a future opening in mind at her company or another organization. If this is the case, she may ask you preliminary questions during this networking meeting. So, always be prepared!

You’re Invited – Career Success Seminar – February 27, 2018

Accomplishment Stories – Your Most Powerful Tool to Get the Job Offer

Date: Tuesday, February 27, 2018
Time:
10:00am to 12:30pm
Presenter: Ford R. Myers, President of Career Potential, LLC
Location: Radnor Financial Center, Radnor, PA
Investment: $25.00

Remember a time when you heard a friend or colleague tell a memorable story? You can probably still recall some of the details about that story long after it was shared. Good storytelling creates a vivid picture and a positive response in the listener’s mind. Utilizing stories to enhance your job search is a skill that is often overlooked. Yet, without powerful accomplishment stories to tell prospective employers, you have almost nothing to “sell.” When you can effectively tie your accomplishment stories directly to the employer’s needs and problems, you will dramatically increase your chances of getting a job offer!

Many of us feel that the stories about our work-life are not particularly interesting. Others struggle to come-up with any accomplishment stories at all. This seminar will show you exactly how to identify and develop your own compelling accomplishment stories – stories that will become your most powerful “selling tools.”
