Networking Tips

Tips for meeting and networking with San Jose Water Company Representatives:

  • Prior to the event, spend time researching San Jose Water Company and the products/services we procure.

  • Be able to articulate the services your company provides and how you can work with San Jose Water Company. In order to obtain referrals, you must first have a clear understanding of what you do that may help San Jose Water Company meet its objective to deliver quality water at affordable cost.

  • Practice your two-minute introduction. Most networking events have time limitations. Do not exceed your allotted time attempting to tell every detail about your business. Prepare your two-minute speech, one you can easily articulate to a San Jose Water Company representative.

  • Follow up efficiently on referrals you are given. After your initial meetings, follow up with contacts by email or a telephone call in a timely manner.

  • If you are a diverse (woman-, minority-, service-disabled veteran, LGBT) vendor, apply for diverse certification with the CPUC Supplier Clearinghouse.

  • Proceed with a positive attitude.
