You've Never Met Them Before

Hello [Dr. Jones]

I hope you’re having a great week!

My name is [Keke], and I work as a [Communications Associate] at [RTY Press]

I recently attended a the [Alumni Leadership Conference] and you were a [panel speaker] that I related to the most. I wanted to reach out to tell you how much I admire your career journey and leadership in your organization. 

If you’re open to it, I’d love to grab coffee to learn and find out more about your experience.

I am really looking forward to keeping in touch.




Hello Ms. Krista Adams,

I’m so excited to be here in [L.A.] even though I have yet to fully acclimate to the environment. I would definitely be interested in [meeting for coffee]. If you have time this week for an introductory phone call to set up a meeting, please let me know! I end at 6PM every day except Friday, when I finish at 2PM.

Looking forward to meeting you soon!



You've Never Met, but You've Spoke with Them over the Phone

I’m so glad for our call last week! Thank you for your great advice, and I’m definitely going to try your suggestions for things to do around DC. Just wanted to follow up to see when you would be available to meet in person. My current internship has just started its two week break, so for this week and the next I’m pretty much free all day. Could we grab coffee or brunch? Let me know, thanks!

You've Met Before, Just Didn't Have the Guts to Follow up with Them

Thank you so much for your advice last week at the [UMD career fair] regarding [internships in accounting and finance]. I would be very interested [in interning in your office] if the opportunity is still available. Please let me know if I could set up a time to speak with you over the phone, or if there are any further steps I should take.
