Q: Can I be open about my job search at a networking event?
A: Lawyers’ professional communities tend to be small worlds even in big cities. At an event, you want to network for connection: Who can you meet there to follow up with, afterward and confidentially, about your search? Enjoy the event without worrying about breaking into job search mode right then and there. That approach will also motivate you to attend more events…and thus make more connections.
