Hi, !

I hope you had a great week. Have you been supercharging your network this summer and meeting awesome pros, potential mentors, and employers at internships or networking events, like Hustle Summit?

Keeping in touch with people you meet throughout your career is important at any stage — whether you’re job hunting or settled — a newbie or super experienced.

I get it though. It can be tough to know: who do you follow up with, when do you follow up, and what do you say?

Use the weekend to think about, who did you think of lately? Who are you grateful for? Who helped you recently? Or a long time ago?

Gratitude and follow up is so key. The persistent and grateful win the best opportunities.

Need some pointers? We got you covered with some of our favorite resources on following up:

💥 Send a thank you message within 24-48 hours after you meet:

💥 Wrapping up a successful summer internship? A thank you gift for your boss is thoughtful gesture that goes a long way:
