Email to a Senior Banker:

Dear Mr. Walter,

It was a pleasure meeting you at the info session this evening. I was the psychology student who asked you about running marathons and banking. I really liked your talk about the Tesla IPO and I’d love to learn more from you about life and careers. Might I be able to call you sometime this week?

Sincerely,

Erin

You have a couple options here. I recommend a call because in 30 minutes they can get to know you pretty well and you can get to know them pretty well. Another thing you can do, instead of asking for a call, is to offer to just keep them in the loop via email. You can use a sentence like, “Is it okay if I send you questions and updates via email?

I send occasional emails and keep my senior bankers updated on my recent accomplishments. Even though I’m currently too inexperienced to be worth his or her time, who knows what opportunities may lie in the future?

Email to an Analyst or Associate:

Hi Sarah,

It was great meeting you at the info session today. I was the student with whom you discussed parasailing. I had such a great time meeting you and I’m really excited about the Financial Sponsors group. May I call you to learn more about how I can prepare myself for this wonderful opportunity?

All the best,

Erin

So, that’s how you do it! Keep the email short, no more than 4 sentences. And don’t forget to send them email updates over the course of your recruiting season!
