Work the room, and don’t let one person monopolize your time.
Like any party, you have to be active at the holiday shindig to be noticed. And, no, “active” does not mean miming the lyrics of Lady Gaga’s “Applause” and vomiting Jagermeister into a urinal. Though, that sounds pretty epic. Anyway, try to do a back-and-forth with every person possible and see who clings to your commanding presence. Hopefully it’s that gorgeous girl from sales and not a bunch of clowns from the IT department.
