I graduated from undergrad in May and had my IB analyst offer rescinded shortly before graduation and haven't been able to land on my feet since then. I've spent the last four months building a very solid network (50+ calls). Luckily, due to my situation, my cold email response rate has been closer to 25-30% than the 5-10% that everyone talks about. I have also virtually exhausted my alumni network, and I'm not sure what else I can do other than what I've been doing.
My question though is now that I have built this large network, how exactly do I follow up with these connections. I feel like getting on a second phone call is pointless and is it okay to just followup with a few sentence email that says asking if there is any changes in the hiring situation/update. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
