partyThere’s a certain buzz in the air this time of year, don’t you agree?

Especially here in New York City, just walking in office building lobbies and hearing exciting chatter, there’s no denying holiday parties are in full effect.

Yes, it’s time to celebrate accomplishments from the previous 12 months but it’s also time to make the most out of robust opportunities to make unforgettable impressions!

What’s better than showcasing your executive presence than mingling with leadership in a festive atmosphere? Here are three tips to standing out and making yourself known as a holiday soiree.

Party Photos: Mediabistro’s Student and Intern Party in NYC

With summer internships well underway, mediabistro.com gave the hardworking interns a chance to mingle and share a drink at last night’s Mediabistro Student and Intern party.

On top of meeting future co-workers in the media world, the students also got a chance to chat with  Alex Weprin, editor of TVNewser, and yours truly, editorial assistant and social media coordinator. Also present were Jessica Carlson, client services associate of the Job Board, education manager Amanda Pacitti and education assistant Sandra Reitman. Lots of advice and questions were swapped, but what was the biggest concern for the interns? Breaking into that first job.

Luckily for them, online marketing manager Caitlin McKinney hosted speed interviews for two openings at our own company: online marketing coordinator and events assistant. Nineteen hopefuls jumped into the interview with two to three minutes to prove themselves.

The rest of the students didn’t leave empty-handed. Each attendee received with a $50 discount to a year-long AvantGuild membership, and all had a chance to win a free Mediabistro class and a coffee with a mentor in the field of their choice.

Missed out last night? Then tune in to our free July 31 webcast on what it takes to jumpstart your career in media. Execs and editors from Travel + Leisure, Comedy Central and ABC Television will be online to help you discover the best ways to get your foot in the door.
