Having a job in advertising is exciting and comes with lots of perks, not the least of which is getting to go to swanky hotels for networking events, like the one I attended for ThinkLA last week at Mr. C in Beverly Hills. That’s where the fun ends for me though. Putting me in a crowded room full of strangers and asking me to go and make friends is basically at the top of my list of nightmares. I am terrible at superficial conversation, and networking does not exactly lend itself well to deep intimate conversations so it always leaves me feeling very awkward. This is an occupational hazard, since being in sales comes with lots of networking responsibilities especially when your company’s the event sponsor. Luckily I didn’t have to brave the crowds alone this time and got to attend with one of my favorite colleagues.  I’m hoping to hone my friending skills by going to more of these this year.
