I recently filmed a video with some top tips on how to follow up with people that you meet at legal events.
Maybe they gave you a business card and you just want to ask them some questions. Perhaps they asked you to contact them regarding work experience or job opportunities. Maybe they asked for you to keep them in the loop about your career. Whatever the reason this video contains some basic tips to help you reach out to them.
3 quick ways to assist you with following up with people after an event.
- Jot down some notes on their business card or a notebook. Note down who they were and most importantly WHY you need to contact them (if there was a reason of course). For example, if you need to send them your CV to look over make sure you write that down and you do it.
- Don’t be afraid to remind people (politely) where you met them. For example, it was really great to sit next to you at X.
- Spelling and grammar is important. Misspelling someone’s name is poor form, especially when you have it on a business card in front of you.
