How to proceed?
I emailed a college alumni on job opportunities in banking (on Monday afternoon).
He quickly wrote back, told me that I have a strong resume, and encouraged me to join his firm. He told me that he will brainstorm opportunities with his colleague. (on Monday afternoon)
I quickly wrote back telling him the specifics on why I like one particular area of his practice. (on Monday evening)
Did not hear from him. Waited another 24 hours and sent him a specific email about the 4 positions he had recommended and the application process. My personality and questions on which positions to pursue. Upon internet research, I realize that the due date has passed for those 4 positions. (Maybe that is why he had to brainstorm with a colleague) (on Tuesday evening)
At this point, what should I do with this connection? My instinct is to leave it be. If something comes up, he will let me know. I have fully expressed interest. Any experience with this? I have never been in this situation.
This firm is one of the top banking companies with rigid hiring dates.
