OCI Receptions

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Aug 06, 2013 12:43 pm

How do you juggle these? I've been invited to 3 thus far that are all on the same night in roughly the same window. I'm definitely interested in all 3 firms. Do I pick one? Can I jump to another one? I know this is a trivial question but I just want to make sure I'm not being rude if I leave one to go to another.

Rank them 3-2-1. Go to #1 last so you can work the room without time being a factor. Obviously, if you make a great connection with 3 or 2, go with the flow. Main caution is not to get too hung up on some cohort and miss #1 (although if that is the worst thing that happens… still a good night). :)

Wut? Rank them 1-2-3. Do your best to get to all 3 but otherwise go with the flow. Sneaking out is way easier than sneaking in. You'll look like a dolt if you show up at your top choice with 20 minutes left. If all three are taking place 7-9 I might shoot for 7-8 at #1 then split the second hour between the other two.
