Not sure what to say when networking with alumni?
Here are two sample alumni networking e-mails:
Hello, my name is Ashley Briggs, and I am a senior at W&J majoring in international business. I noticed that you graduated from W&J in 1998, and you are now working at XYZ Company as their VP Global Operations. I am extremely interested in this field, and I was hoping you could tell me a little more about how you got into this area and what you currently do in your career. Working at a firm with such an international scope and focus such as XYZ is what I hope to be
doing after graduation. Thank you for your time. I hope to hear from you soon.
Hello, my name is Ashley Briggs, and I am a junior at W&J majoring in international business. I noticed that you graduated from W&J in 2000 with the same major and you are now working at XYZ Company. I am currently looking for summer internships, and I could use a little direction from an established professional like you in my search. I am not sure about what path to take the international business major on and what kinds of opportunities are open for students with my background. I would love to hear any ideas or advice you might have to share with me. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
