Based on my interactions with friends, students, and fans, at conventions, meetups, and in general social situations, I’ve come up with the following list of Dos and Don’ts for networking within the industry. While a lot of this is common sense, I’ve found that our field seems to be a place where enthusiasm (or general awkwardness) often trumps formality. If you’ve been looking for a push in the right direction – and want to ensure you’re seen as the potential colleague, rather than the creepy fan or friend-wannabe, check out the tips (inside).
Thanks for joining us this year here at NerdAppropriate.com! 2011 was an incredible year for all things nerdy, and we had an absolute blast talking games, movies, and nerd culture with those of you that were brave enough to check out our content. While things have been in a bit of a “transition” here at the site, we’re not going anywhere! 2012 will feature all new interviews, convention reports, podcasts, and toilet humor, so hold onto your butts!
If you feel like spreading some New Year’s cheer, head on over to our iTunes page and give our podcast a rating. We’ve published 45 episodes in a little over a year and would love to know what you all think. You can find the link HERE. Also, a huge THANK YOU to all of the readers, developers, actors, directors, and game-fans that made this year an absolute joy for us. Even though we’ve had a rough month Nerd Appropriate is here for good. Have a great holiday!
