Sending Networking Emails: From Work or Personal Address?
Pretty self explanatory question. I'm reaching out to a mixed bag of alumni and people further up the food chain in my specialty. I am torn between the officiality of sending these emails from my work address (not to mention the ability to template effectively)... and the safety/security of sending them from my personal address.
As a little background, I am pretty close with thelead, and I know our emails are not monitored for content. We scan attachments for sensitive info, but that is all. So getting "caught" networking (as if that can't be spun into a good thing) is not a problem. Not to mention the email itself isn't like "OMG MY JOB SUXXXX GIVE ME A NEW ONE PLEASE BRO". I have received these emails and I still laugh (and then forward to select friends) when I receive them. So don't worry about that either.
