Myth: Going to networking events with a friend will give you someone to talk to when things get boring.
Reality: Graduates are often intimidated by networking events, so you will ask friends to come along. The problem is, you spend the whole event talking to no one but the people you already know. It is best to go to networking events by myself when I can. This forces you to reach out and meet new people. This is the way to connect with people, build confidence expand your network.
