Keeping in Touch with Your Network

Write thank you notes. If someone has answered your questions, given you a lead, reviewed your resume, or helped you in any way, acknowledge their efforts by writing an e-mail or hand-written note that day.

Keep in touch

Keeping in touch can take several forms. If you are searching for a job, let your contacts know the outcome. Send an e-mail to ask a follow-up question. Look for contacts at conferences or other events.

Give others something they need

Forward an article related to a professor’s work or a conversation you had. Offer to connect your internship supervisor with resources at Georgetown.

Help others succeed

As a man or woman for others, you can be a resource for classmates as they begin their own searches. Sign up to be in the Alumni Career Network when you graduate.
