The 13 Worst Networking Mistakes

Dan Woog, Zac Frank | AllHealthcare

8. Dressing Down

Look sharp at networking events. Mind your manners, shake hands firmly, stand up straight, make eye contact and show respect in any way you can. A networking event can be a dress rehearsal for a job interview, but no one will help you get your foot in the door if you give the impression that you’ll slouch through it once it’s open.

Think that it might be a more casual dress code? Don’t dress down unless you’re 100% certain. Being overdressed is always better than being underdressed. Even if you look a little out of place, you’ll stand out in a good way.

9. Being a Wallflower
