I'm in Canada and I just got into the networking sessions for BMO Capital Markets, RBC Capital Markets and TD Bank Financial Group. Lucky I got in because all the sessions filled up within 2 hours of them being offered.
Now that I'm in I have no clue what to do... I've never been to a networking session before! How do I approach these guys? What do I talk about? How do I make them remember me when their reading 5,000,000 resumes/cover letters?
I'm getting business cards made up right now from CRA (Canadian equivalent of IRS) for the sessions so I can hand them out. Also, I got a nice suit from my cousin for the sessions, is this overdoing it? Should I just wear a dress shirt and pants, no tie or yes tie?
Any tips would be appreciated thanks!
