conference, there is still networking value you can take advantage of remotely. Review the program, see who is speaking or attending, notice what organizations and companies are exhibiting, follow the Twitter feed, and then reach out to participants you would have liked to meet in person. "Email them and let them know you won't be at the conference, but that you are very interested in their work and that you'd like to explore the opportunity to partner," Levine recommends. "Ask for phone or Skype appointments following the conference." Make sure to close the loop. Follow-up is of the utmost importance. If you just go to a conference and do nothing after it, you have (almost) completely wasted your time. "The meeting itself is the starting point to make contacts, to develop partnerships, and If you're not coming home from professional conferences having made promising connections with others in your field, you're doing it wrong. One of your primary goals at conferences should be to network and how to do it. to appropriately promote yourself and your work," Levine notes. "After everyone has returned home, it's up to you to make sure you stay on your new contacts' radars. Start by composing an email thanking each person for his or her time at the conference, recapping what you talked about, and suggesting a phone or Skype appointment to further develop your partnership." "When you optimize your time before, during, and after a conference, you will be pleasantly surprised by the relationships you forge and the opportunities you uncover," concludes Levine. "While 'born connectors' might make networking look effortless, it isn't. The more time and energy you put into making and developing career-enhancing relationships, the better your results will be. And who knows? In our increasingly connected world, your greatest future success might be a direct result of the networking you do at your next conference." Alaina G.
