Do you get a little nervous when it comes to networking? We've put together these tips to help you you master any situation and give you more confidence.

One of our favourite pieces of advice here at FutureRising is simply to attend industry events. Rooms are full of people who might hire you.

Networking may not be the most satisfying experience all the time. But once you get into it, it becomes much easier. You begin to realise that even the most senior people in the room aren't just happy to talk to you, they actively want to chat. They want to meet young talent because they've got vacancies to fill (if not now, they're sure to soon). They want to hear your ideas, they want to know what you know.
