Organized by YEP-Nashville

Like much of the music industry, technology has completely changed the game on how we network today. It's not enough to just make a good impression in person anymore. In fact, you rarely get the chance to make a first impression in person.  Networking today involves social and professional networks, email, text messages, and in-person meetings, and in a sea of millions, it is difficult to stand out online to your target audience. With young professionals constantly cold-emailing industry professionals for coffee meetings, how can someone stand out from the rest of the inbox, and what can you do to make sure that your information is found in their search? From perfecting your resume to networking beyond email, the Young Entertainment Professionals (YEP) of Nashville — deemed “the twentysomethings changing Nashville’s networking tune” (Forbes) — has gathered a group of seasoned Nashville professionals to discuss the best practices and the top do's and don'ts of networking in the digital age.
