February CNE at OM Restaurant and Lounge

Being young in the ways of publishing and networking, I find that I get butterflies in my stomach before I go to an event, interview or any other semi-professional environment. It's a brand new chapter in life and I am only a couple pages in, but the Bookbuilder events have made the jump fun and comfortable.

Conversation is made easy by such a friendly and engaging atmosphere. Whether you are interested in editorial, production, design,  freelancing, copyright, or something else there is sure to be someone to talk to and learn from. And making new connections is as easy as turning to the person next to you.

So, whether you want to meet people, find a job, or just talk shop in a friendly atmosphere, the event is perfect. Who knew that casual and networking were such a perfect fit? They go together like peanut butter and jelly - you could have them separately but it's so much better when they're together.
