Hey all professionals,
I'm looking at changing up my career path a little bit.
I'm going to a conference for three days next week and need a little advice as to how to effectively network and anything in general that will help.

Thanks.

Talk to lots of people and ask them lots of questions about their jobs. What they like, what they dislike, strengths needed to excel, pitfalls, etc.

Don't grill them like a Nazi interogation, but at the same time be more focused on getting them to talk about their career than you explaining what you are looking for. If that makes any sense.

Granted, the site realy has an overarching global networking perspective, but you might want to visit this site for some ideas:
