To Students: Your goal should be to make professional contacts, build relationships, and learn about the industry. Remember that the professionals are there to get to know you, so introduce yourself and act naturally. Be polite, professional, and confident. Ask informed questions about the firms and the individual’s career path. Be prepared to talk about your goals and future plans. Talking about personal life is always okay as long as it is professional and relevant. Also try to avoid carrying unnecessary baggage, it will be better to keep your hands free.
