As you’re reading this whole list of things not to do, it’s easy to start envisioning yourself sitting in the corner dressed in a trench coat, drinking nothing but water, and not uttering a single word to anyone for fear of politics or a confession slipping out. But let me remind you, this is the prime opportunity to mingle with new people you might not see every day. So use this list as a guideline; don’t dwell on everything that could go wrong. Get out there and introduce yourself to the CEO, key clients or co-workers from satellite offices. The relaxed party environment is perfect for making a great first impression.
