I’m New Around Here. How Do I Get Folks To Pay Attention?

the flasher
A year ago (May 2009), I had the honor of speaking on a Jane Cranston conference call. Jane Cranston was a former VP in my BNI chapter. She is a well-respected Executive Coach. Every month, she calls on her colleagues to give some words of wisdom and inspiration to her clients and listeners.

My call was entitled, “Are You Networking Or Not Working?” We discussed how to “work” a networking event, what to do after the meeting, how networking can help your job search/interviewing, as well as the pros and cons of social networking.

This segment is from the Q&A part of the call.  A young lady wanted to know how to convey her desirability when either meeting someone or being interviewed for a job. Especially when you are not that experienced or cannot drop celebrity names.  (Backstory:  When Jane introduced me, she made sure to mention that I worked for nearly two decades in entertainment, which means that I had the pleasure to work with some entertainers.)

I think Gary Vaynerchuk would be very pleased with my answer.
