Networking Spreadsheet

When done INCORRECTLY, informational interviews actually harms your chances of landing a job at your target company.

One of the biggest mistakes I see students and young professionals making is FAILING to follow up with connections on a regular basis

Informational Interview (aka Coffee Chat) Mistakes

To help you with this, I created a quick and dirty networking spreadsheet for you to keep track of your professional network

Instructions

  1. Make a copy of the Google Sheet
  2. Use the "Snapshot" tab to keep track of all professionals you chat with
  3. Only create new "Tabs" for the top 3-5 professionals you WANT to continue following up with (i.e. are they in companies or roles you are super interested in?)
  4. Review this trix on a weekly or monthly basis, it WILL pay off!
