How to Work a Room: Your Essential Guide to Savvy Socializing
Susan RoAne, 2007.
This revised edition
brings a networking classic up to date -- with changes throughout in response to
the impact of technology on networking and also as a result of the author's
continued work in this field. Learn, for example, how to work a "virtual" room
and how to work the "techno-toy" room while continuing to polish in-person
networking skills. The ability to build relationships has always been key not
only to job search success but also to success as a lawyer, but in this market
networking has become more important than ever. RoAne identifies the roadblocks
that prevent effective networking and offers practical tools and techniques for
socializing in any setting, for starting and ending conversations, and more.
