of you will be heading home for Thanksgiving, which means turkey,
football, and...smalltalk. Prepare yourself for the onslaught of
questions about your life from immediate and extended family by checking out who
will be in attendance at your holiday gatherings. Instead of feeling
like everyone is going to want to talk to you, turn the tables and
decide who YOU want to talk to! Ask to be seated next to your people of
interest, and turn the smalltalk into a relaxed but productive
networking opportunity. Who knows, maybe your uncle is golfing buddies
with a former Congressman, or your cousin brought his new girlfriend who
just came off a campaign as well. By the time you get to dessert, you
could have the names of several people to contact about informational
interviews next week!
