Never leave home without it…your Nametag

How many times have you found yourself all psyched up and ready to network, dressed the part, good hair day and all that, only to find that no name tags were provided at the check in table?

Oh no big deal…except try to work a room that is busy with conversation, musical accompaniment, drink orders abounding and you have to ask the person you are talking to to repeat their name two or more times? 

Make the time and effort to always have a name tag for yourself.  Get the plastic sleeve that you can slip in a paper that you’ve printed your name on in BIG letters so it can be read easily.  Store it in your car so you will always have it with you when you attend a networking opportunity.  I also keep one in my briefcase and another one floats from purse to purse.

Another advantage to a sturdy name tag is that if sticky tags are provided, you will stand out in a crowd with your permanent version.  People will take you seriously.  If you are in career transition, if you are seeking new business opportunities, regardless, don’t you want to create a professional impression in any circumstance?
