Networking is a skill that will follow you for the rest of your career. Work to control your nerves, and hone your conversational skills. Your hard work will be rewarded.
The employers will meet a ton of students tonight; how will you set yourself apart? Sending a follow-up note or email to professionals you meet is another way to be visible to them (not to mention, it's good etiquette). Put those business cards that you'll collect to good use!
If you are planning to do an internship, you need to attend Meet the Firms ONE WEEK FROM TODAY (9/6)! No ifs, ands, or buts about it...this is your chance to network with all of the premier employers on campus, and allow them to put a face with your resume. I repeat - you will inhibit a successful job search by not going to this event. I cannot stress it enough!
