Follow up E-mail without sounding pushy/desperate? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I need to send a follow up E-mail to a contact who asked me if i was interested in working at an IB over the summer. We left the conversation at me E-mailing him about dates I am available to work, but as yet he hasn't got back to me and its been a week now. The thing is I don't want to sound like I'm "gagging" for experience even though I am.

    I'd leave it a few more days, HR often have barrier which are outside of their control 1 week is nothing. If you do decide to email them again, just explain your situation and why you require confirmation of dates (fixing accommodation, etc).

    You can of course try think up another independent reason to email him, and this might act to jog his memory regarding your other email
