Speed networking is a great way to meet and network with lots of new people in a short timeframe.
Here’s how it works: a large group of job seekers sit at different tables. Each job seeker sits directly across from another person. A Moderator times each face-to face conversation. When the Moderator gives the signal, one job seeker takes an allotted amount of time to network with the other person.
When the time is up, the Moderator gives another signal. The other job hunter takes a few minutes to network with the other person. Again, when the Monitor says the time is up, those seated on the outer row of each table move to the next chair and the process starts all over again.
Job seekers on the outer row of seats continue moving to the next seat after each timed interval runs out. The networking continues until the Moderator announces that the entire speed networking session is over.
If you are interested in this kind of fast-paced networking, the Professional Service Group of Central New Jersey (PSGCNJ) will be offering a speed networking session entitled New Year, New Attitude, New Network, Monday, January 13th, in place of its regularly scheduled general meeting. Remember to bring lots of business cards.
There will be no guest speaker at this meeting. Instead, we will focus on networking, networking, and more networking. Bring a friend, and join us Monday, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the First United Methodist Church, located at 48 West High Street, in Somerville.
All PSGCNJ meetings are free and open to the public. Can’t make it this week? Visit our website at www.psgcnj.org for upcoming events.
