Did you attend a recent recruiting event, on-campus interview, or networking event? If you made some good connections but have not yet followed up, here are some ways to keep the momentum going.

  • Keep your follow-up emails brief and succinct (greeting, express gratitude, reiterate your skills/experience/value, salutation).
  • Include any specific points that you discussed with the recruiter. Review any notes you took that day.
  • Check grammar and spelling, as these errors can completely derail your message.
  • Be patient but persistent. Don’t call the company the next day if you haven’t heard back, but do maintain contact and follow up again after 10 days.
  • Here are a few follow-up email templates
