For those of you who have been to networking events or social events in general and have seen some strange things, you’ll understand where I’m coming from today.

For those of you who are new to networking and attending social events to build your network and want the 411: You’ve come to the right blog.

#3 thing to Never do at a Networking Event: Never make crude jokes, say inappropriate things, or purposefully be offensive or rude. I realize you might be nervous walking into a group of new people you’ve never met before. I think we all understand nervousness and trying to fit in. But making fun of someone’s name or culture or outfit or making rude jokes about the bartender or someone’s industry is not okay. You do not know the humor of those you don’t know, so don’t make dry or sarcastic jokes to a bunch of strangers if there is a big chance they may not laugh or understand it. Save the political humor for after the event when you meet up with your friends.

#2 thing to Never do at a Networking Event: Never come off as being super arrogant, know-it-all, 100% perfect, God’s gift to humanity. It’s annoying as much as it’s unattractive. It is super commendable that you are proficient in Korean or you know all about website coding or you worked in the White House as a photographer. Super cool! Boasting, bragging and talking about it nonstop is not super cool, so just take it easy on the accolades and fun facts and trivia you know.

#1 thing to Never do at a Networking Event: Never be the mood-killer, buzz-killer, Negative Nancy, Gossip Girl. No one wants to attend the pity party you are having now or later. No one wants to marinate in the bad news and the madness that’s going on somewhere else. And if they do- there is something wrong. Do not be the Negative Nancy who has nothing good to say about the appetizers, the Merlot, the parking situation, or the hostess.
