So how can you ensure that you are connecting with and impressing the right people? A practical, step-by-step guide for creating, cultivating, and capitalizing on networking opportunities and relationships, this book shows you how to make a memorable entrance, make conversations flow, and follow up.

In this completely revised edition, the authors offer new case studies, examples, checklists, and questionnaires, as well as expanded advice on building social capital at work and in job hunting.
