Following Up Is Easy

Whether you meet someone at a job interview, career fair, or a coffee chat, following up isn’t just a good idea—it’s a requirement!

Within 24 hours, write a short, 2–3 sentence email saying thanks for your time, highlighting something you enjoyed from your meeting, and that you look forward to doing, talking, learning, or hearing more about X soon.

That’s literally all it takes. Do not flake on this.
