Be responsive

Don’t wait for your match to coordinate. Reply with a few suggested times to get the conversation started.

Be prepared

Do a bit of research on your match by looking them up on LinkedIn or a company server before you meet. This way you’ll have a greater sense of any topics or questions you’d like to explore.

Introduce yourself

Let your match know more about who you are, what you’ve been working on, what your interests are, and how long you’ve been with the organization to get started.

Meeting someone new can be nerve-wracking. But it doesn’t have to be. Authenticity and openness can lead to a stronger, more meaningful conversation.

Stay focused

It can be tempting to check back on work during your chat. Turn off notifications so you’re not distracted. If you are joining virtually, keep your video on to stay engaged.

Stay connected

If you got a lot out of your introduction and want to keep the conversation going, don’t be shy. Ask your connection if they’d like to set up another conversation or connect with them on LinkedIn.

Share feedback

After every Introduction, you’ll be asked how it went. Share your feedback so we can learn a little more about how your conversation went. Take it one step further by expressing your gratitude by paying your match a compliment.
