I had a meeting 2 weeks ago with an analyst. At the end of the meeting he said he would look into his contacts and see if he could set me up with another meeting. It's been 2 weeks since then. Anyway, I wanted to know how to follow up on that meeting and the inquiry, so it doesn't sound too aggressive?

How to Follow Up on Informational Interviews
In addition to sending a thank you email, you should definitely follow up on informational interviews, especially if the person you met with mentioned putting you in touch with other contacts. WSO users recommend keeping the follow up short, conversational, casual and confident. Instead of OP's sample (at bottom of the post), one WSO user recommends:
Analyst by his first name,
I enjoyed our chat a couple of weeks ago - thanks again, I appreciate your insignt / book suggestions. You mentioned you might be able to set me up with some contacts in the industry - if you are still willing to lend a helping hand it would be much appreciated.
Feel free to contact me my phone - 713......

- Rude to Not Actually Have a Coffee During an Informational Interview Over Coffee
- Informal Interview with TheBrofessor Talking Career Life Money Etc
- Taking Notes During an Informational Interview
- Why Does it Feel So Weird to Make an Ask at the End of an Informational Interview?
Just a sample I came up with, but imo it feels too pushy? I know I'm not really entitled to anything and our meeting was through a cold email in the first place.
Hi Mr. xxx,
I'm just following up on our meeting we had 2 weeks ago (thanks once again for taking the time). I looked into the reading suggestions you offered me and picked out a few books that caught my eye. I was also just wondering if you came across anyone who would be open to an informational interview with me such as the one we had?
Hope you have a great weekend!
