Making the most of the opportunity: tips for success

Be appreciative and polite

Be confident and enthusiastic

Never bad mouth others

Use your “elevator pitch”

Maintain eye contact and good non-verbal communication

Turn off your cell phone

Dress for success

Use common sense and be self-aware, and you’ll do great!!

the handshake
The Handshake

Keep your right hand free

Shake “web to web”

The handshake should not last longer than the greeting

Avoid hand over hand, touching, or patting

Shows interest, respect and sets the tone for the conversation

Shake firmly enough to display confidence without being a “bone crusher”

after the event
After the event…

Take the initiative in following up with mentors with whom you would like to continue a relationship

Find out how your developers like to be communicated with (phone, email)

Respond to all emails and phone calls from developers within 24 hours

Make sure your email address is appropriate

Use the event LinkedIn group but think about it before you decide to “friend” your developers on Facebook
