I go to a non target in the midwest but have quite a few alumni working in IBD. During my freshman year, I sent networking requests to quite a few alumni through linkedin and some of them did not respond. Now I had not done enough research so some of those requests sounded cringe and kind of made my sound like a try hard (I listed clubs and said I wanna prepare for IB ASAP). Yea I know! Now during recruiting reason next year, should I send them another networking request on the same platform? It's been a year. Do they still remember me?

@_KrK, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Might want to skip the people you sent the worst stuff to. Also always email people, don't use LinkedIn most people never check their LI messages.

Important caveat is people with LinkedIn premium. Quite a few bankers have it and if they are paying for premium, they are more likely to check dms.

  • Prospect in IB - Gen

Just contact them using a different platform. It sounds like you didn't email them last time, so send them an email, as is always the best practice (imo) for networking anyway
