I feel so professional! I've had two people email me with an interest in my research, based on my poster at the conference I didn't actually go to. It's so exciting! And a little nervewrecking, since I didn't think the poster was that great. But it's a start, and I guess that's what's important.

Lesson: Don't be afraid to cold-email people. (Like cold-calling: contacting someone who you've never met before.) Not that I have been - I've done that more than once and had really good results. People are flattered when you're interested in what they do! Maybe the big names won't reply, but I think most people will.

  1. yay! i love it when people as me questions after presentations too. conferences definitely rejuvenate the research feeling, even if you don't actually attend!
