To be honest, one should spread their net as wide as possible but I was simply not too interested in one of the positions but maybe I could have emailed him as well asking for referrals? Well, the fact is I only emailed 2 and I felt that I was already doing a lot. I seriously need to change my mentality, I am still not assertive enough in the pursuit of my dreams, I have also failed to impress the bankers I was speaking to at first sight and I only have myself to blame. I have not been following market news for a while after my prop trading nightmare and I am running away from my dreams and responsibilities by giving myself excuses. That has to change, especially when I want to be a networking ninja.
For those of you who are interested, this is what I sent to 2 of the bankers:
- Who I am and a short common topic during the fair
- Background information about myself
- How they made me learnt something new (they really did)
- Expressing gratitude and asking for help with resume
