Networking Events: a worthwhile approach in searching for Hawaii Jobs?
Networking is also a great way to overcome shyness and insecurities. You may feel over-whelmed with negative thoughts like: I don't have much to offer or people won't be interested in what I have to say. Rather, consider taking the approach of listening to whomever you approach and try to be a help to them and see how the conversation may unfold and please, don't judge people by thinking you don't have anything of value to say: let them decide. Consider bringing a friend along as well; don't hang around at the event, but it can give a certain level of comfort to have a friend come along and share the experience.
Networking events can have so many valuable attributes not only on your job searching, but on a different human level in improving one's comfort and overall self-satisfaction.
