I Will Survive!

19 Dec

How to survive your first office holiday party as a young professional.

These are just a few things I’ve learned in my vibrant three years as a young professional.

1. Show up early. This way you have sufficient time to go to the restroom, fix your disheveled self and have at least one cocktail before others arrive.

2. Bring a date that will keep you laughing. This is extremely important for the awkward factor. If you look occupied, people will sit with you. It’s one of those weird laws of nature.

3. Drink whiskey, scotch or vodka. And for God’s sake, try sipping…not chugging. Anything else will make you look like the college frat kid at the party.

4. Act happy about whatever shitty gift you get that isn’t a bonus check. After all, you are the new kid on the block.

5.  Laugh at your boss’s lame jokes and offer to buy him/her a drink (especially if it’s an open bar 😉 )
