It’s time for holiday gatherings...use the guest list to your advantage

Posted By Lily McCall, GAIN intern, Monday, November 22, 2010
Many 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!
