When attending networking events, it is easy to feel intimidated by senior managers who are smooth talkers and know exactly what to say and when to say it. They seem to ooze confidence, command attention and are always dressed in the best. University students are completely allowed to be, and are even expected to be, a little awkward in these situations. It is good to keep in mind that senior leaders have usually been in their industry for a very long time and have gained a wealth of insight and experience into what they do.

You can have your own Tesla S Model for a mere drive away price of $131743. If that doesn’t motivate you to aim for a high paying graduate job, I don’t know what will.
