You are welcome to come to any session, and you don't have to be there right when it starts. The important thing is that you come to a session before your registration week, so you know what to register for on time.

Career Corner - Tip of the Week: Networking
But the challenge of networking is we have to go it alone.
When you bring a friend, it's like bringing a security blanket. you may feel more comfortable, but you won't meet anyone new, because you will have your friend to fall back on for conversation. Being alone forces you to seek out others. Bringing a friend also makes you look dependent on others. you want to let others know you can hold your own.
Ditto for "helicopter mom" at the Career Fair. Or cradling your cell phone for the entire evening.
If you want to move forward in your career, it's time to get uncomfortable. Smile, introduce yourself and give a firm handshake. It might feel awkward at first, but with each person you meet, your confidence will grow. And who knows, you might meet the person who will make a difference in your career. Or make a new friend to not bring the next time.
