For this week's events, reminders, and updates: @IUMaurerLaw.
You have just conducted your first few informational interviews. So what do you do next?
First, make sure you thank the person who was willing to take time out of his busy schedule to speak with you. Personalize this note either in longhand or through email, and make sure it contains something that shows you were listening to the specific advice that was given.
Next, be intentional about reconnecting with the contact. There is no specific way to do this, but here are a few examples:
These steps are all about creating common ground. Always keep in mind that you aren't going to hit it off with every person you meet. Focus on fostering those relationships where you have a lot in common. With relationship development it is truly the quality of the relationships, not the quantity.
