Valentine’s Day was last week, and normal people the world over celebrated their healthy, fulfilling romantic relationships.

What dullards.

Here at Work It, we recognise that there is no relationship more satisfying than a business contact. After all, career advancement is our love language!

Use some of these pickup lines at your next networking event, and you’ll have all the best-connected execs begging to take you for coffee and ‘pick your brain’.

Is that an astronaut pantsuit? Because your professionalism is out of this world!


Are you a lightswitch? Cause I want to turn you on…to an exciting business opportunity!

On a scale of 1 to America, how free are you tonight…to mentor me?


Let me be the Jobs to your Wozniak.


Do you like pancakes? Well how about IHOP on that conference call.


That’s a nice business card. It would look even nicer in my Rolodex.
