    Basically next Monday i'm going to be doing some additional work experience in Corporate banking (just for bants) at Barclays in bham office.

    Basically, this was setup for me by a chap named Ray, who is the MD of their midland corp banking stuff and he came down to my uni, i spoke to him and he gave me this. So now I have three questions.

    1) Likely hood is that I will probably have Lunch with Ray once (his words not mine). So seeing as he is a MD is it likely can he sort me out with anything of use?

    2) Whats the best way to network while i'm there? I have no clue. Go around asking to connect on linkedin, emails? Once I get those details what do I do?

    3) Who else are the best people to 'network' with?

    Sorry for being a network noob. ty,
