The primary purpose of the monthly meetings is to provide an opportunity for you to meet, network, and learn from your FENG friends. We normally break into small groups for two or three 20-to-30 minute Tabletop Networking sessions. Session begins with each person taking 60-90 seconds to introduce themselves (strict limit; great "elevator speech" practice for an initial contact with a potential networking source) covering:
- Who I am
- Where I work or worked last
- What I'm looking for
- What I need help with
The rest of Tabletop session is informal conversation focusing on your distinctive competencies, future plans, and target companies, and how FENG members can help in your search.
It is especially useful for those in active search to bring resumes, a target company list, and business cards to hand out so your new friends can read about your background and have a record for future network contacts/opportunities.
Dress is business casual.
