The article "How Your Lunch Can Be A Great Networking Opportunity", posted on the Over Lunch Facebook page last year, was shared quite a few times-- and for good reason.
Many find themselves too busy to take a proper lunch break, but lunch is a great opportunity to not only take a break from work, but to also network and meet new people. Some may argue that networking and meeting new people feels like work. And if you feel the same way, read the last post.
You don't need to use every lunch break to network, but why not make a goal to use one or two lunches a week to meet somebody new? Who knows where you're next lunch break will lead?
